Orange Curd

A sweet orange curd that I prepared last week, I used Valencia oranges for this recipe . This orange curd is easy to prepare and perfect for filling tart, on the top of pavlovas, cookies and much more. I always like to prepare in advance some jars and stored them into the refrigerator.


  • 3 oranges (Valencia)
  • 180g of caster sugar
  • 3 big eggs
  • 3 generous teaspoons of cornstarch
  • 100g of  butter


  1. Remove the zest of the oranges and put them into a large bowl.
  2. Squeeze the juice of the oranges and set the lemon juice aside (300ml).
  3. In the large bowl with the oranges zest, add the sugar and the eggs.
  4. Start to whisk energetically until the cream becomes yellow pale and creamy.
  5. Pour the cornstarch and the orange juice.
  6. Cook over low heat and stir with a wooden spoon until the texture becomes thick and smooth.
  7. Remove from the heat and add the butter cut in small cubes.
  8. Whisk until the butter melts.
  9. Pour the creamy orange curd into individual small jars.
  10. Allow to cool outside before refrigerated.

Bonne dégustation!
