Lemony bliss on my blog today 😄🍋 one of the most popular classics has finally made an appearance here and in the brightest way possible!
I don’t know why it’s taken me soooo long to post a lemon cupcake recipe. I’ve already shared this lemon cake which is to die for and one of the best lemon cakes I’ve ever eaten but there was always that void for cupcakes! There’s always room for more and more is definitely needed when it is the softest, fluffiest, super moist and creamy sunshine lemon cupcake bursting with bright flavours and dreamy textures.
I’m telling you, this cupcake is by far the best lemon cupcake I’ve ever had the luxury of eating! 😄
It took me a while to figure out and achieve this recipe because I just couldn’t make a lemon cupcake that I liked enough to make it my ultimate go to. I never thought it could possibly be so hard, I mean just add some lemon to any vanilla cupcake recipe right, but no I needed something more!
These cupcakes are very similar to that lemon cake I referred to earlier, in fact it’s the same ingredients and the same concept but I took the recipe even further by making it even more fluffier. Like so fluffy and creamy, it truly is a dream.
These cupcakes are super easy to make. I use the standard creaming method here as opposed to the reversed creaming method like in the cake. Doing this gives the cupcakes that extra puffy fluffiness that is oh so delicious!
Sour cream and milk are used, sour cream is a must because it makes the texture of the cupcakes so moist and creamy, I love it! If you guys don’t have sour cream then regular yoghurt is fine too.
Seriously would you just look at this crumb 😀 I’ve never had anything like it!
I topped these cupcakes with vanilla frosting because I love the whole lemon vanilla combo but they are just as perfect with lemon buttercream, any berry frosting like this one or this one and even cream cheese frosting. Whatever the topping you desire, this base is amazing!
I honestly can’t believe how perfectly beautiful this cupcake is and I am so excited to share this recipe for you guys to try!
