Homemade Passionfruit Curd

Homemade Passionfruit Curd

Passionfruit curd is like lemon curd's tangy tropical cousin. The method is very similar and uses only a few basic ingredients. Only about 10 minutes and a bit of whisking separate you from perfect curd. If you can wield a whisk, you can make this recipe!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 cups/jars


  • 2/3 cup 160ml passionfruit juice (seeds strained out and reserved)
  • 165 g butter
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks


  1. Place passionfruit juice, butter and caster sugar into a saucepan and whisk over medium heat until the butter is melted and the sugar has dissolved
  2. Put 3 eggs and 2 egg yolks into a bowl and whisk them together. Pour the passionfruit mixture over the eggs slowly and whisk them together.
  3. Put the mixture back into the saucepan and whisk continuously for 6-7 minutes until it has thickened and coats the back of a spoon. Sometimes I like to add a few tablespoons of the passionfruit seeds back into the curd.
  4. Pour into sterilised jars and store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
