the lemon zest, lemon juice, and butter.

 Cook and stir until mix becomes thick and begins to bubble.
lemon curd, eggs, cooking
Place your eggs in a bowl and add approximately 1/2 of the lemon
mix to the eggs. Whisk these together quickly. You don't want the
egg pieces to begin to cook from the heat of the sauce.
Pour this whole mixture in to the saucepan and cook 2 more minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Set aside. This will make about 2 cups of curd.
 Reserve 3/4 of a cup for filling the top of the bundt cakes.
