SO, I never took a pic of the lemon buttercream cupcakes...but that's ok...they are gone, and these look cuter :) I am on a lemon kick for some reason! so tonight I made LemonDrop cupcakes...soooooo good! Here is the recipe!
1 cup butter
2 cups of sugar
1.5 tsp of lemon extract
1.5 tsp of vanilla extract
3 cups of flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
1 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice....again becareful not to get seeds in there!
1 tbsp of grated Lemon Zest (peel)
cream butter and sugar....add eggs one at a time, then add extracts....next mix in dry ingredients but alternate it with the lemon juice. and last stir in lemon zest.
Back in cupcake tins for 18-23 min at 350 degrees. this is about 2 dozen....only fill them 1/2 way
Once they have cooled for only 10 minutes....poke a few holes in each cupcake....
1 cup of confectioners sugar
and 1/4 cup of lemon juice
spoon that lightly over each cupcake top....make sure it seeps ito the holes!!! throw them in the fridge for about 2 hours. Take out and frost!!!......on these I cheated...I used Lemon supreme frosting in a tub!!!! SORRY!!!!! It was late and I didn't feel like making a lemon frosting!
well give it a shot! AND ENJOY!
