Beat the butter and sugar together until they’re light and fluffy, then beat in the lemon zest followed by the eggs and then finally the lemon juice. You’ll now have what looks like a curdled mess but don’t worry.

You’ll need to keep stirring and may want to adjust the heat to keep it low, this is like making custard – you don’t want the eggs to scramble. Cool completely.
