These fun cupcakes take a favorite sunny-day refresher and turn it into dessert. Add a slice of lemon on top for a puckery finish. —Jessee Arriaga, Reno, Nevada

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
  • ICED TEA FROSTING:
  • 9 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 6-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 3/4 cup iced tea mix with lemon and sugar

Directions

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lemon zest and lemon juice. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition (batter will be thick).
Fill 30 lined muffin cups with 1/4 cup batter. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
For frosting, combine butter and confectioners' sugar in a small bowl until light and fluffy. In another small bowl, stir together milk and iced tea mix until dissolved. Add to butter mixture; beat until smooth. Frost cupcakes. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Not a fan of iced tea? Use powdered lemonade mix instead of the tea mix in the frosting.
  • Want a sheet cake? Pour batter into a 13x9-in. baking pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
  • Need a layer cake? Pour batter into two 8- or 9-in. baking pans. They'll take about 20 minutes or so to bake.

    "Made this as a layer cake for a raffle prize for a theater group. Sold more tickets than usual just based on the name, the description and the look of the cake. Had to make a minor repair to the frosting where it bumped the box in transit--those who "licked the knife" want cupcakes. I trimmed the cake and it was yummy, although I might add more lemon peel next time for a bit more lemon flavor & there DEFINITELY will be a next time!"

    "This cake is so very flavorful. And as weird as the icing sounds or seems it is really good. This won't last long in your house when you make this. I made a 13 x 9 cake and just follow the recipe."
