Lemon Cupcake Recipe!

I decided to give lemon cupcakes a go the other day as i think they are so Spring-appropriate, you know?! Very light and fresh!



So here is what you'll need:

♥ 110g softened butter
♥ 110g plain flour
♥ 110g caster sugar
♥ 1tsp baking powder
♥ 2 eggs
♥ 1 tsp vanilla extract

♥ 110g butter
♥ 110g icing sugar
♥ Lemon juice
♥ Lemon curd



1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees/gas mark 4. Line your muffin tray with cupcake cases.
2. Beat 110g butter and sugar in a bowl until fluffy and pale.
3. Sift in to the bowl the flour and baking powder.
4. In a seperate bowl beat the eggs and vanilla extract together and then add to the main mixture.
5. Spoon the mixture into the cases and pop in the oven for 17/20 minutes. They should be risen and golden in colour.
6. Allow to cool completely, then using a teaspoon take out a little of the top of each cake and add in a dollop of lemon curd.
7. Beat together 110g butter and the icing sugar. Then add in the lemon juice a little at a time and you can taste as you go along to see when it's perfect for you!
8. Scoop some icing on to the tops of the cakes. (You could pipe it on, but i wasn't so successful with that...)



Let me know what you think! Do you fancy giving this a go? What's your favourite spring-time cake?

Thanks for reading! Xx

    1. Thanks! You could definitely substitute the lemon flavouring for vanilla, or you could use strawberry jam instead of lemon curd :) xx

  9. You just can't beat a lemon drizzle, so why not make them as cupcakes? We've got a charity bake off at work on Thursday, so I may just have to steal this recipe... xx Rebecca - UK fashion blog

  14. Mmmm, these look delicious! I love how they have a lemon curd centre as well - I've been absolutely loving lemon curd recently and lemon cake is one of my favourites, although I don't often have it! - The perfect Spring recipe :)

  16. For a twist - I sometimes use a very similar recipe, but add lime instead of lemon! They go great with cocktails then ;) or thats what I tell myself....
