Yummy lemon butter ... in the Thermomix


I have always loved lemon butter and back in the day when I did not know how to cook, I used to ask my dear friend Evie to make me her lemon butter, which was always delicious.

Recently, we came into some lemons, as the lemons were in abundance in the lemon grove on the estate where we live in.


We got a bucket load of lemons and I decided to try my hand at making lemon butter, plus the Thermomix makes it so easy.

Here is the recipe that I used for the lemon butter:

Ingredients:
  • Juice 1 large lemon / 2 limes
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 80g unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs

Instructions:
  • Insert butterfly into TM bowl and add all ingredients.
  • Cook for 8 minutes / 80°C / speed 3.
  • Check to see if mixture coats back of spoon, if not cook for another 2-3 minutes or until desired consistency is achieved.
  • Place in sterilised jars and chill until thickened.
  • Use as filling to make tarts or simply serve as an accompaniment to other sweets.

This lemon butter was super yummy and when it was fresh out of the Thermomix and still warm, I just wanted to eat it by the spoonful.


We had them for morning tea with some scones on the day that I made it, as we had some people come to visit and they enjoyed it to.

This is definitely something that I will be making again.

If you do make this, be sure to post pictures for me to see either on Instagram or on my Daz In The Kitchen Facebook page.

    1. No, lemons OR limes. If you want to make lime butter instead of lemon butter.
