Luscious Lemon Cupcakes | Cooking with Dom

Hello my lovelies!
Me and Oli felt like baking something and after searching through recipes we found an easy and quick recipe for some lemon cupcakes so I thought I'd share our experience with you guys.

140g unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
zest 1/2 lemon
2 eggs
140g self-raising flour
For the butter cream icing
85g butter
175g icing sugar
juice 1/2 lemon
decorations eg pens, sprinkles etc

  • First of all, preheat the oven to 180C/160 fan/gas 4.
  • Line a 12-hole bun tin with cupcake cases.
  • Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl with a wooden spoon until it is really soft, add the lemon zest.
  • Slowly stir in the eggs
  • Gradually add the flour until it is combined

  • Pour the mixture into the cupcake cases, try to spread it out evenly, a good way to start is put a small amount in first then keep adding till it's all even.

  • Put it in the oven and bake for 20 minutes until the cupcakes are golden and not too soft to the touch

The Butter Icing

While the cakes cool, prepare the icing.
  • Beat the butter until it is really soft
  • Gradually add the icing sugar and lemon juice and continue to mix making sure it's not too runny.

  • Spread the butter icing evenly throughout the cupcakes and enjoy!

Thanks for reading, Dom x
