Lactose Free, Sugar Free Lemon Curd

Whilst fumbling through the fridge and cupboards trying to find something to have for lunch I decided I really fancied lemon curd. We didn't have any, but I did have lemons and remembered seeing a recipe for lemon curd in Davina's 5 Weeks To Sugar Free so I thought I'd give it a go.  I've made lemon curd before, but not sugar or lactose free.


             150g honey or maple syrup (I used honey)

             100g lactofree spread

             Zest of 1 lemon

            Juice of 4 lemons

           4 eggs 


           Melt the butter and honey together in a saucepan. Then take off of the heat to cool down so that you don't scramble your eggs. 

          Zest one of the lemons, then juice 4 Davina says you need about 100ml but I didn't measure mine out (might be why it's a little runny!)

         Lightly beat your eggs. 

        Add everything to the honey/butter mix, return to the heat and stir continuously. 

       Keep sitting. The mixture will suddenly thicken and coat the back of a metal spoon. 

        Pass the mixture through a sieve to catch any zest or eggy bits. 

       Put in a sterilised jar and enjoy. 

I know what I'll be having for breakfast and lunch for a while!
