Home made Lemon Curd .. 自制柠檬凝乳

Hi everyone, hope that everyone are fine and well.
I am not very well since CNY because of bad flu and cough. The flu and cough that i had was on and off maybe due to leak of rest (",) and the weather here is really hot.  The bad coughing irritated me. I can't concentrate in whatever things that i am doing...sigh!!

Anyway, i am going to share this Home made lemon curd. This is a simple and delicious lemon curd. 

I love this smooth, sweet and tangy home made lemon curd. It is so good to spread on scones or bread roll or crackers or even better to use as lemon pie filling. 

It is so easy to prepared. All you need is lemons, sugar, eggs and some butter, then you will have a home made lemon curd in no time. I used mircowave oven to make my lemon curd.  

Home made lemon curd
recipe source: 孟老师的甜派与咸派(a chinese version of Meng Lao Shi (Teacher Meng's) Sweet Pie and Savoury Pie)


145g whole eggs
145g castor sugar
135g lemon juice
zest of a lemon 
135g unsalted butter

To do:
1) Add eggs and sugar in a heat proof bowl. Double-boil it until it is warm and sugar have dissolved,  stir with a whisk. Add in lemon juice, keep stiring with the whisk. (i did not use double-boil method. I use mircowave oven to warm and cook it.)

2) Double-boiled the mixture until it is thicken. Turn of the stove, add in lemon zest and unsalted butter. Stir well and its done. 

3) Store it in a clean jar after it is cool.

I have 2 recipes with me when i wanted to try out, which i can't decided which to use. In the end i decided to use the smaller portion recipe.
