Lemon Cupcakes From Scratch



Lemon Cupcakes From Scratch

Lemon is my favorite flavor on earth.  If you put a giant chocolate cake next to a lemon pie, the lemon is going to win every single time.  And it will be gone before the chocolate is even touched.

So I was excited to get to work on Lemon Cupcakes From Scratch.  And when we got in the kitchen it turned out better than I could have hoped.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons Country Time Lemonade Mix (to taste)
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • .5 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 quarter cup half and half
  • Yellow Food Coloring (if you like)

Directions:

1. Cream the butter and sugar.
2.  In a separate bowl whip eggs, egg yolks and vanilla
3.  Add egg mixture to butter mixture.
4.  Mix until thoroughly combined.
5.  In another bowl sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.
6.  Add 1/3 of flour to butter and egg mixture.
7.  Stir until just combined.
8.  Add half of sour cream and half of half and half.
9. Stir to combine.
10.  Add 1/3 of flour.
11.  Stir to combine.
12.  Add remaining sour cream and half and half.
13.  Stir to combine.
14.  Add remainder of flour and combine by hand.
15.  Pour into pan.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.    It should be about 25 minutes for regular cupcakes and 28 minutes for jumbo cupcakes.

We used a lemon icing recipe we found online but you could use just about any type of icing you wanted!
