For some unknown reason I have always thought that making lemon curd was an extensive and grueling process. So not true. Especially when it can be made in the microwave. Couldn't get any easier.
The lemon curd took these already amazingly delicious lemon cupcakes to a whole new level! I'm now obsessed with putting fillings in cupcakes! Such a fun little surprise when one takes their first bite!
Microwave Lemon Curd
1 cup sugar
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
zest of three lemons
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
In a large microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until thoroughly combined. Whisk in the lemon juice, zest, and butter.
Cook in the microwave on full power in one minute intervals. Stir after each minute. Cook for 3-5 minutes. The lemon curd is done when it coats the back of the spoon.
Refrigerate in airtight jar. Can be stored for up to two weeks.
