Low sugar lemon curd


You will need

  • 1 x Noshu 98% Sugar Free Vanilla Velvet Cake Mix (frosting sachet only)

For the lemon curd

  • 1 x sachet Noshu Vanilla Frosting Mix
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice ⁠
  • 4 egg yolks ⁠
  • 70 g butter, cut into cubes ⁠
  • Zest of one lemon ⁠



  1.  Fill a medium saucepan 3/4 full with water and bring to the boil.
  2. Place a glass bowl on top of the saucepan to create a Baine-Marie (making sure the bottom of the bowl isn’t touching the water).⁠
  3. Place your frosting mix, lemon juice, lemon zest and egg yolks into the bowl and whisk using a hand whisk until the mixture thickens. This should take about 5 minutes.⁠
  4. While continuously whisking, gradually add the cubes of butter and keep mixing until the butter is melted and the mixture is smooth and thick. ⁠
  5. Carefully remove the bowl from the heat and cover the curd in cling wrap, ensuring the cling wrap touches the lemon curd itself, so it doesn’t form a skin.⁠
  6. Refrigerate and enjoy on pancakes, crepes, toast or on it’s own.


Tip: Mix the curd really well before serving each time.


Store refrigerated in a glass jar for up to 1 week.⁠
