Lemon cupcakes, perfect for a tea time treat ! Lemons are one of my favourite fruit to bake with. It is amazing at how much zest, tang and overall deliciousness these delightful fruit add to baking and cooking. They take away the overpowering sweetness of cakes and balances the flavours so beautifully.
These little lemon cupcakes are really easy to prepare, and have that delicious aroma of sweet lemon.
This is one of my favourite quick recipes to make, especially as an afternoon after school little treat. I used the tiny cupcake foil holders in this recipe, so these are just one bite size cupcake, but you can use the larger sizes if you prefer.
Try grating a little lemon rind over the frosted cupcakes or you could sprinkle some toasted desiccated coconut over as well to give it a different taste and texture.
