Keto Lemon Curd: aka what to do with a bunch of egg yolks!!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8 servings
The best egg yolk recipe to help you use up those yolks in a delicious way! What I did with the whites? But Sesame Buns and Bagels of course!! See links below.
  • 8 organic egg yolks (from the eggs in my Keto Bagel or Sesame Bun recipe)
  • ½ cup Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • the zest of all the lemons you squeezed
  • 2 Tbs vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup or 65 grams Confectioners Swerve
  • 1 and ½ stick (12 Tbs) of Organic Butter, melted and cooled down for 5 minutes.
  1. In a bowl whisk the yolks with the lemon juice, the zest, the vanilla and the Swerve, until the eggs turn whiteish and the mixture is very smooth.
  2. Add in the melted butter and whisk again till smooth.
  3. Place the egg mixture in a small saucepan over a very low flame. You can either do this or cook it placing the first sauce pan inside another pan filled with water, which will sit on the flame. (Bain Marie). This option is less likely to burn if you step away.
  4. For either option, cook the mixture on very low heat stirring regularly, for about 10 minutes, or until the curd is thick enough to cover the back of a spoon and bubbles start to appear on the surface.
  5. Pour the curd in to a mason jar and chill.
  6. Keep refrigerated. Will keep about a week in the fridge.
