Lemon Curd 5 Ways

Have you ever eaten lemon curd?  It’s one of my favorite things to eat, although I must admit that before I tried it for the first time I wasn’t quite sure how to eat it.  Is it like jam?  What do I put it on?  I tend to use it the same way every time (option number 1 below), so I rounded up some delicious ways to expand my lemon curd usage a bit.  If you’ve never tried lemon curd before or if you are searching for a new way to use it, read on for some tasty new recipes that use this delicious, lemony goodness.

1.  Waffles with Lemon Curd and Fruit.  

This is how I eat lemon curd most of the time.  I pop some frozen multi-grain waffles into the toaster and then immediately cover them with lemon curd once they’re nice and toasty.  Then I top it with berries.  It’s so delicious and one of the best ways to start the day!

2.  Lemon Curd Mousse.  

Doesn’t this mousse by The Kitchen McCabe look delicious?

3.  Lemon Bar Muddy Buddies.  

I’m crazy about the chocolate version of “puppy chow,” but this lemon version by Lemon Tree Dwelling sounds pretty amazing.

4.  Crepes with Lemon Curd and Greek Yogurt Filling with Blueberry Sauce.  

I don’t know why I’ve never thought to mix lemon curd and Greek yogurt, but I’m definitely going to try it out soon.  It sounds like a tart, creamy match made in heaven!  These crepes by Yummy Mummy Kitchen look so good.

5.  Lemon Curd Trifle with Berries.

A trifle is my go-to dessert when I attend a potluck.  It’s easy to make and it’s really pretty too!  This lemon curd version by A Hint of Honey is entirely homemade (and it looks amazing!), but if you’re short on time you can just use store-bought lemon curd, poundcake and whipped cream.

Inspired to make something lemony now?  I know I am!

    When I did a study abroad in London we bought lemon curd pretty often (they sell it everywhere there) and we'd sometimes eat it on little butter crackers when we wanted a snack. Nothing fancy… but super quick and easy!

    Hey there! I am a fellow bloggish girl! I don't think I have ever had lemon curd actually! I love everything lemon-y though! I will have to try it somehow! I hope you have a great weekend and I will definitely be stopping by again!

    That sounds delicious! I actually discovered lemon curd while at Oxford visiting my dad. My mom and I went to high tea at a fancy hotel and we both fell in love with the little sandwiches, scones and lemon curd! I bet you had such a fun time studying abroad!
