    These cupcakes have four parts, but they are worth it! Watch your friends' faces when they bite into one and discover the tart and tangy curd inside! Some special tools to make these cupcakes a knockout are a piping bag and star tip, and a small torch to brulee the meringue. It is fun to experiment with citrus curds. If you have meyer lemons or rangpur limes available, subtitute it for the regular lemon juice and decrease the sugar by about 4 tablespoons. Yum!

    This is one of my favourite cupcakes to bake and my absolute favourite to eat! It’s the perfect cupcake and they are lovely to enjoy in the springtime sunshine. They are a fresh light cupcake, great for garden parties or summer time birthdays. They are perfect beside a cup of earl grey tea.

    Here is the recipe I use to make beautifully light and delicious lemon cupcakes. I wanted to use cream for a less buttery icing and they turned out perfect!

    Zingy cupcakes! If you like a bit more lemon - add more zest. This will make 12 medium sized cakes.

    Really simple! Measuring is easy to do - just use the container the yoghurt comes in - and the cake mixture is all made in one bowl.

    These gluten-free lemon cupcakes get a big dose of lemon flavour from lemon juice and lemon zest. They are delicious and moist and I think come out tasting better than if they were made with regular flour. Decorate with your favourite icing and a sprinkling of lemon or lime zest.
