Now summer is in full swing I thought I would publish this lemon cake cupcakes recipe. These cupcakes are the perfect lemon dessert for spring and summer or any season really. In this recipe there is a lemon buttercream frosting paired with a soft and moist cupcake tastes delicious with a warm cup of tea.
These cupcakes are quite strong in lemony flavour, especially as it has a lemon buttercream as well. You can replace the lemon buttercream with standard vanilla buttercream frosting if you think the lemon flavour is too overpowering. Depending on your personal preference you can adjust the flavouring as necessary.
I use a traditional American buttercream flavoured with lemon for the frosting. However, there are lots of different frostings that these cupcakes go well with. You can use milk instead of double cream. It is up to you. Only add 1 tablespoon at a time because you don’t want the buttercream to become too runny. It is important that you whip the butter first and don’t just add everything together.
Try these cupcakes with a zingy lemon buttercream frosting for the perfect spring and summer dessert!
