You will not miss the butter in this curd recipe. I like this just as well as the recipe I use that calls for butter. I did not add the vanilla because I want to taste all that lemon goodness. This was the perfect amount to fit into the Gerber infant food container, the larger one of the two sizes. I'm sure it will be gone by tomorrow night. Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game
This is my first time making curd and I'm thrilled with the end result. It is delicious and I love that it is lower in fat because there is no butter in it. I used this to "save" some leftover lemon cake which was just a tad dry. This made it taste marvelous again. Thx so much **Mandy**!
Fantastic!! Thanks heaps!! Supper Yummy & soooo easy to make :)
Thank you for posting a lighter lemon curd! I get to indulge without the guilt!
I decied to try this recipe for my first attempt at lemon curd and lower calorie made even more appealing. Easy, tasty and glad can enjoy on tea breaks with scones. I made essential as written but used a natural cane sugar. Was initially concerned would turn out dark colored but remained with an acceptable lemony color. Like a previous reviewer I left out the vanilla. Thanks for posting.
Just what I was looking for! I had no idea how fattening lemon curd was until I started researching recipes. I thought this recipe turned out great. The directions were spot on. Thanks so much for posting.
Yum! Butter is definitely not missed! I was making lemon-meringue cupcakes so instead of the egg, I used the 4 egg yolks left over from the meringue - I was afraid the curd would taste too "eggy" but it was perfect. I also lowered the sugar to 4 tbsp. Firmed up nicely, colour was beautiful, and lemon flavour was very present. I had just the right amount for 12 cupcakes.Thanks for the recipe Mandy :)
This lemon curd is amazing! I love that it's light but has tons of flavor. My family loves when I make crepes and make this to enjoy with them along with fresh berries. Thanks for sharing this great recipe. I think I am going to make it with an angel food cake tonight for dessert.
I've used apple juice instead of lemon (I don't like lemon) and Orgran NoEgg substitute for two eggs and it turned out very, very tasty. So easy to put together and ready in a few minutes. Thanks for shareing this recipe:):)
Great taste and texture without all the fat. The lemon taste is perfect and this was very easy to do.
