The five ingredients for this recipe are simple and easy to find. You do not have to cook much, but receive an easy lemon curd. It is perfect as a filling for cupcakes and cakes, tarts, rolls or topping for various desserts, toasts, buns and homemade waffles. Since the curd has a very bright lemon and butter taste, it is more likely to supplement the main cream with a neutral sweet taste (for example, buttercream).
