Lemon Cream Cupcakes
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
Makesabout 2-1/2 dozen
These cupcakes have a nice light, lemony flavor that explodes when combined with the frosting. These are heavier cupcakes but I enjoyed the texture. I agree that you need to double the frosting, as I like a bit more frosting. These are great for beginners who want to try baking from scratch.
My daughter loves to make these! They turn out great!
These cupcakes are moist and delicious. The only problem I had was with the frosting. I had to make two recipes of frosting to cover 2-1/2 dozen cupcakes. The next time I'm going to try a Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting just like zrmag1 did.
Very light & moist cupcakes, not a strong lemon flavor.
This recipe is amazing! So easy to make. I'm using this to make cupcakes for my brother's wedding, I am also making chocolate cupcakes and am wondering if I can use this same recipe for the chocolate cupcakes? How would I do that? Please help... the wedding is august 8th
I only did the cake on this one and honestly used what I had. I didn't have fresh lemon so I used 1 1/4 tsp of lemon extract and the lemon taste was just right. I also used 1 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream as that was all I had. And I use 3 tbs to 1 egg of olive oil mayonnaise instead of eggs. They tasted just like those lemon girl scout cookies. I put a butter cream icing on top. I will use this recipe with other flavors in the future!
These were not my kind of dessert but came out quite yummy - I thought they had a lot of lemon taste in them and will use this recipe again
My husband really enjoyed these 'moist and lemony' muffins. I sprinkled them with yellow colored sugar.
I loved the texture and moistness to this cake. I actually am going to try using it as my vanilla cake recipe without the lemon and adding some vanilla beans. YUMMY!
These are good cupcakes, not too sweet and the lemon flavor is very delicate. I had them without frosting, but with sliced strawberries mixed with sugar like a small strawberry shortcake.
