Tenina's Lemon Curd - via Judydawn
« on: September 03, 2010, 09:45:14 am »

Jennamez, I have found Tenina's Lemon Curd recipe amongst my many untried recipes, for some reason this one was hand-written.

100g butter
fine zest of 1 lemon
juice of 2 lemons
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
150g castor sugar

Place everything into the bowl.  Chop 5 seconds, speed 7.
Insert butterfly and cook 8 mins/80o/speed 3.

I have a complaint about this recipe.  I keep having to eat it with a spoon out of the jar.   ;D

Gosh, you had me worried there for a minute Marilyn.  As it seems to have disappeared off Tenina's website I thought maybe there was something wrong with it.  Phew  ;D ;D

Oh, so busy being hilarious I forgot the possibly useful bit.  The sugar doesn't need to be caster sugar.  I had already started making it when I read that bit and so I didn't turn my raw sugar into caster sugar, and it was fine.

Thanks for the tip Marilyn. I like your sense of humour.

This is the latest link, slightly different. Citrus butter, but replace all lemon if you want...

Looks like it's definitely lemon curd / lemon butter season.  It's great stuff.

This recipe is definitely a winner Judy. Have you seen the interview Helene did with Tenina on her blog? it is great.

Just made a double quantity of this divine curd to give as gifts.  When the eight minutes were up, I was disappointed to find it hadn't set . . .yep, forgot to double the eggs!  Waited for it to cool again, added 2 more eggs, cooked again--and it is still perfect!  I know because I "licked the bowl" myself (and the butterfly).

Made this yesterday. So simple. I was a bit worried it didn't smell right when cooking but when I tasted it today, it was delicious!!

I agree, Tasty.  I made a double batch of this recipe last weekend and everyone in the family loved it.  Thanks, Tenina.

Next time I make lemon curd, I'm going to try Alyce Alexandra's recipe and see if I can remember Tenina's enough to make a comparison.
