Instant Pot Lemon Curd

Instant Pot Lemon Curd

  • Author: My Heart Beets


  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons butter


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until mostly smooth (it may be a little grainy due to the butter and that’s okay).
  2. Pour the contents of the blender into an oven-safe glass container and cover it tightly with foil.
  3. Pour 1 cup of water into the Instant Pot, place the trivet inside, then place the glass container on top of the trivet.
  4. Secure the lid, close the valve and cook for 5 minutes at high pressure.
  5. Naturally release pressure.
  6. Give the container a stir and watch as it transforms from looking like a set custard to becoming a perfectly smooth and creamy curd.
