A creamy and tangy lemon curd with a background of coconut flavor. It's easy to make but requires a lot of constant whisking; it's worth it in the end! Serve on top of cake or perhaps sweet biscuits.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a saucepan with enough water to come about 1 inch up the side. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.

  • Combine eggs, coconut oil, sugar, lemon juice, and salt in a large bowl. Set the bowl on top of the saucepan so it is over, but not touching, the simmering water. Cook, whisking constantly, until curd is smooth and the consistency of pudding, 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Remove bowl from the saucepan and continue whisking curd until slightly cooled, 2 to 3 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold and slightly thickened, about 1 hour.

Coconut oil tends to be partially hard so if you saw...hard coconut oil as an ingredient it might make more sense (would to me). I didn t slice it just used a teaspoon to get it out of the jar. This is a very good lemon curd recipe the coconut flavor definitely is recognizable and the curd has a nice balance of sweet and tart. Read More
