  • The zest and juice of 3 lemons
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 50g butter
  • 2 Free Range Ethical Eggs


  1. To a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, add the lemon zest, juice, sugar and butter, stirring occasionally until the butter has melted.
  2. Beat an egg using a fork or whisk, then stir the beaten egg into the lemon, sugar and butter mixture. Continue to whisk the mixture over a gentle heat for around 10 minutes, until the it becomes thick like custard.
