Microwave/no butter recipe is brilliant.

No. did mine in the bowl over boiling water. didn't take long and is so yummy

kaddiew. what is the recipe for the no butter one please?

kaddiew, May 18, 6:04am
It only makes a small amount, but it's so quick, and you could double it. Rich and creamy; you don't miss the butter.Keeps for a couple of weeks in the fridge, and freezes well - scoop straight from the freezer.

2 eggs + 1 yolk, 1/2 cup sugar, juice & zest of 2 lemons (I use more for tangier taste).
Lightly whisk eggs, add the rest. Microwave on High in 30 second bursts for 2-3 mins, stirring in between. Store in fridge.

Hi. I make it in my microwave, and make it without butter too. leave it out of your favourite recipe and make as usual. I use a hand-held zester to add the zest in long strips. so delicious!

I use the hand held zester too. I love the long thin strips in anything using lemon. : )

Here you are mydebe.

Glennys Raffill’s LEMON HONEY
75g butter
¾ cup sugar
2 tsp finely grated lemon rind
⅓ cup lemon juice
2 large eggs, beaten

Put the butter, sugar, lemon rind and juice into a little jug and cook on HIGH (100%) for 1-2 minutes (until the sugar has dissolved). Mix and gradually add to the egg mixture, stirring well. Return the mixture to the jug and cook on MEDIUM (50%), stirring every minute until the mixture thickens (3-5 minutes). Mixture will thicken more as it cools.

(2) Lemon Honey using left-over egg yolks
1 cup sugar
100g butter
grated rind of 1 lemon
juice of 3 lemons
1 egg
3 egg yolks

Same method as above.

Recipes tested in a 650W microwave oven. :-))
