Last night I made the S'mores Cupcake and the Cinnamon Toast Cupcake.
Today I present...
The Lemonade Cupcake!
This is a recipe I came up with myself.
I used a basic white cake recipe and added lemon curd jam and lemonade mix along with a dash of lemon extract in both the cake and the cream cheese icing.
It tastes heavenly and smells amazing.
Here is my recipe:
6 egg whites
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 tsp lemon extract
1 1/2 sifted flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp lemonade mix
Preheat oven to 350
Sift all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl combine egg whites, butter, lemon extract, and milk.
Stir mixture in to the dry ingredients.
Fill a dozen muffin cups 3/4 of the way full.
Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcake comes out clean.
Let cool completely before frosting.
Lemon Cream Cheese Icing
2 packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 tsp lemon extract
2 tsp lemon curd
1/2 tsp lemonade mix
Beat butter and cream cheese together until mixed well.
Blend in all ingredients except the sugar, mix well.
Beat in sugar gradually, until you have used it all.
Frost cooled cupcakes.
