We have a new recipe for you! It’s an unusual curd recipe.

You better get ready for this bright grapefruit taste!

Ingredients & tools

You will need:

  • Gelatin 3 tsp | 3.00 tsp
  • Cold water 3 tbsp | 3.00 tbsp
  • Butter 150 g | 5.30 oz
  • Sugar 390 g | 13.75 oz
  • Eggs 8 pcs (4 whole eggs + 4 yolks) | 8.00 items
  • Juice from 1-2 grapefruits (240 ml) | 8.10 fl oz
  • Fresh lemon juice 2.5 tbsp | 3.00 tbsp

You will also need: bowls, a mixer, water bath, a whisk.


  1. Mix the sugar and the butter. Whisk until a fluffy white mass.
  2. Add the eggs and the yolks, and whisk for another minute.
  3. Add the juices to the mixture, and combine well.
  4. Pour the gelatin with water in a separate bowl.
  5. Start heating the egg-grapefruit mixture in a water bath. Actively stir it with a whisk, until the mixture becomes thick like semolina, and stops flowing from the spoon.
  6. Add the gelatin to the mass, and mix with a broom until it disperses. Stir the curd through a sieve to get rid of the lumps. You can also add some dye (orange and pink), if you wish.
  7. The ready curd has to settle in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

That’s it! A very citrus cake filling is ready!

Bon Appetit!
