Sweet, tart, smooth, and creamy, homemade lemon curd really is possible in just minutes! When I saw a recipe for microwave lemon curd, I will admit that I was skeptical. I adore lemon curd, but I am such a slacker about making it. I never want to stand by the stove and stir it for the requisite 15 minutes. Having tried this now, I may never make lemon curd on the stove again. Microwave lemon curd really works!
This recipe is SO simple, the hardest part is juicing the lemons. If you’re lucky enough to have a kid who thinks juicing citrus is fun, it’s a total win. (Just don’t tell them it’s work, okay?) Whisk everything together, microwave for a minute, whisk again, and repeat a couple times. Then just try to refrain from drinking the warm lemon curd as it cools. Did I mention that lemon curd is a weakness of mine? Eating it with a spoon is showing self-control in this house.
