Super easy Eggless Lemon Curd recipe – tastes just like the real thing!



  • 100g (3.5oz) salted butter
  • 100g (3.5oz) white sugar
  • 200ml (4/5 cup) lemon juice (about 6 lemons)
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 2 Tbsp cornflour
  • 2 Tbsp cool water
  • 100g (3.5oz) condensed milk


  1. Place the butter, sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest (if using) in a small saucepan on medium heat and bring to a gentle simmer. Stir, as the butter is melting, to mix.
  2. Let the mix simmer for 1 minute.
  3. Mix the cornflour and water to a smooth paste, and very slowly drizzle this into the lemon and sugar mix, stirring constantly, until the mixture has thickened.
  4. Take it off the heat and stir the condensed milk in. That’s it.
  5. Transfer to a sterilised jar, bring to room temperature, then store in the fridge for up to a week.
