Mixed Citrus Curd

0 Photos

This citrus curd is a great filling for all types of cakes. I love this one in a wedding cake that I make that uses poppy seeds, lemon, lime and orange zest in the batter. If you use a cream cheese frosting, it's just about perfect. You can also serve it with fresh British scones.

2 cups


  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks

  • 3 large eggs

  • cup fresh lemon juice

  • cup fresh lime juice

  • cup fresh orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

  • 1 tablespoon lime zest

  • 1 tablespoon orange zest

  • 2 pinches salt


  1. Place sugar, butter, eggs, juices, zests, and salt in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until curd starts to bubble and thicken, and can coat the back of a wooden spoon, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into a bowl. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the surface to prevent a skin from forming.

  2. Refrigerate curd until set, 2 to 3 hours.
