Published Friday, 22 March, 2013 by Rachel

Really lemony cupcakes that are so simple to make!



  • 4oz butter
  • 4oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4oz self raising flour
  • zest of 1 lemon, finely grated
  • roughly 6-8 tsp lemon curd
  • makes 12


1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees celsius. Place 12 small cupcake cases in a cupcake tin.

2. Beat the butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy (this should take 1-2 minutes). Beat in the eggs one at a time.

3. Fold in the flour. Mix in the lemon zest, keeping back a tiny amount to garnish the finished cupcakes.

4. Fill the cupcake cases about half full and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until well risen and golden brown. Place on a wire rack to cool.

5. Meanwhile, place the lemon curd in a small microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for about 10 seconds to soften.

6. After the cupcakes have been cooling for about 10 minutes, spoon a small amount of lemon curd on top of each and spread with a knife.

7. Finally, sprinkle a tiny bit of the leftover lemon zest on top of each cupcake.

enjoy warm or cold. There are also freezable, so no excuses not to make them!
