Lemon cupcakes with vanilla and matcha tea frosting
I’ve made and blogged about lemon cupcakes a few times, like here and here, but I only now realized that I’ve never shared the recipe. I apologize, because I think this recipe is definitely a keeper. The cupcakes are easy to make, moist, and work well with several types of frosting.
Here’s what you’ll need and how to put it all together:
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Combine and whisk together cream, eggs, yolk, vanilla, and lemon.
Cream together the butter and sugar in a mixer. Beat until well blended.
Add the dry ingredients in three parts, alternating with the wet in two parts.
Scoop batter into a muffin tin and bake at 350F for ~15-20 minutes.
The top will start to crackle when it’s done baking.
