QUICK & EASY LEMON DRIZZLE CUPCAKES




It has been way too long since I've been in the kitchen and baked up some tasty treats, I couldn't really be bothered to do something too fancy so I thought I'd bake myself into it easily haha, i'm so bad at jokes! Anyway, how cute are these Lemon Drizzle Cupcakes? 

It's probably one of the easiest cupcakes to make and super tasty too... just keep reading to find out for yourself: 


You will need

250g unsalted butter, softened 
400g caster sugar 
3 eggs
250g self-raising flour 
3 lemons - zest & juice 





To Make 

1. Preheat your oven to 160c / 140c fan / gas mark 3. Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin cases (i used cupcake cases and had too much mixture left) 

2.  Put your softened butter into a mixer and mix on high speed for a good 4 mins until light and fluffy, now add in half of your sugar and mix again until combined 

3. Mix in your flour, eggs, zest of 2 lemons and 1 lemon juice, don't over mix just until all combined. 

4. spoon into your muffin cases evenly and bake for 20 mins, whilst waiting mix your remaining caster sugar with the juice of your other 2 lemons

5. Once out the oven pierce some holes in them with a skewer or fork and drizzle over your sugar / lemon mixture and leave to cool 

6. This is optional but i mixed some icing sugar with water to a thick paste and put this into a piping bag and piped over the top of my cupcakes and decorated it with a little jelly lemon sweet. 


What do you think of these lemon drizzle cupcakes? will you be making them?
