1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks 
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tsp lemon zest grated


This really is the best treat ever,  blend everything at once, pressure cook on high for 10 minutes, leave it for a 10-minute natural release and then whisk the heck out of it. .

I mix AND cook this in my PYREX 4-cup measure, but you can use any oven-safe dish or casserole, or even mason jars. Avoid anything metal because it sometimes produces a metallic taste. Blend all the ingredients at once. I use an immersion blender, but you can use a food processor, blender, hand mixer, whisk, whatever you prefer. Pretty simple, right? Except for the cooking, that's pretty much it.

Put 1 1/2 cups of water and the trivet in the Instant Pot. Put the lemon curd on the trivet and cover with a sheet of parchment paper. (Not absolutely necessary, though.) Close the lid and make sure the valve is set to Sealing.

Push the Pressure Cook (or Manual) button. Use the + and - buttons to get to 10 minutes. When it beeps that it's done, leave it for 10 minutes natural

release. (You can double this recipe - same cook time.) Then flip the valve to Venting for a quick release of any remaining pressure.

When the pin drops, open the pot and take the lemon curd out. It will look weird and “split” but don't worry. Use a whisk to vigorously blend the curd until smooth. It just takes a minute. If you want, you can strain it to remove the lemon zest for a perfectly smooth result. Cool on the counter for half an hour or so and whisk again. And you're done... not kidding... that's it.

Refrigerate for up to a week.

This is fabulous as a cheesecake topping, tart filling topped with whipped cream, on yogurt, ice cream, on toast or pancakes. Also good standing in front of the fridge clutching a spoon with a guilty look on your face.

Sweeter curd, Lime Curd and Orange Curd:

* Sweeter curd: If you prefer it sweeter, add an extra 2 - 4 Tbsp sugar and add an extra egg yolk. Everything else remains the same.

* Lime or orange curd: Substitute lime juice and zest for Lime Curd. For Orange curd, include 2 Tbsp lemon juice in the ? cup juice. Using all orange juice can be too sweet.

You can make any kind of curd using juice from whatever strikes your fancy, whatever.

I love lemon curd. You really should try this recipe if you haven't. I know you love lemon! A friend makes raspberry curd but I don't have the recipe. She's a fabulous baker and maker of sweets. She had a business for a while and was much in demand.

DH loves the raspberry & I like the Lemon.  

When I make my homemade yogurt, I like to put a little lemon curd in it sometimes.  Which reminds me, I haven't made my yogurt lately, I need to do so.  Then I'll make the lemon curd.

I love both raspberry and lemon flavors. Two of my favorites.

You must find yogurt making simple in the Instant Pot. I hear people rave about it.

Just put the ingredients in the IP, stir, turn it on & the hard part is the waiting till you can eat it.

This is what it looks like.  Edited to say, have no idea why it the picture turned around.

Easy peasy. Others have been complaining about sideways photos, too. It's not just you.
