Sunday Sweet "Lemon Cupcakes"
I love cupcakes and lemon so I wanted to share my Lemon Cupcake recipe.
3½ oz softened butter
3½ oz softened cream cheese
2 tsp finely grated lemon rind
2/3 cup superfine(castor) sugar
½ cup all-purpose (plain) flour
1/3 cup self-raising flour
Pre-heat the oven to 325oF (160oC).
Line a 12 cupcake pan, with cupcake papers.
Beat the butter, cheese, lemon rind, sugar and eggs until smooth and creamy.
Sift the flours. Add the flour gradually to the cheese mixture and beat on a low speed, until just combined.
Divide the mixture evenly between the cake cases.
Bake for 25 minutes until firm to touch.
Allow to cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.
