Passionfruit Curd or sometimes known as Passionfruit Butter is like Lemon Curd, only tastier! The sweet and tart flavor of passionfruit will blow your tastebuds away. And the best part is that it’s so easy to make.
If you have a passionfruit vine growing in your yard, you are usually overwhelmed with fresh passionfruit. I used to freeze fresh passionfruit in small jars, as there was so many ripe at the same time. It was easy to defrost and use later. This recipe is perfect for enjoying the tropical taste of passionfruit well beyond the passionfruit season.
What is Passion Fruit Curd Used For?
It’s used as a filling or a topping for a variety of different desserts. I love eating Passion Fruit Curd with fresh baked scones, on a spongecake, with a Pavlova, or even over pancakes or with sweet dessert crepes. Try it as a topping for cupcakes, or even on toast for breakfast. The possibilities are endless. The jar I make never lasts long at my house.

- 4 eggs lightly beaten
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 cup passionfruit pulp with seeds
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 cup butter cubed
Take the passionfruit pulp into a small bowl, using a whisk, beat it to break apart the passionfruit membrane. Strain the passionfruit pulp using a sieve, and keep about half the seeds to be added into your pulp.
In a saucepan over medium heat, place eggs, yolks, passionfruit pulp and lemon juice.
Using a whisk, stir constantly so the egg doesn't cook. After sugar has dissolved, slowly add bits of butter until it melts.
Reduce heat to low, keep constantly cooking and stirring until the passionfruit curd thickens. This may take up to 10 minutes.
Allow to cool and keep refrigerated
