Hii! As promised I am sticking to my schedule and series, so I had a scroll through Pinterest for an easy recipe and came across one for lemon cupcakes with a raspberry jam filling! Super duper easy and they actually turned out really great to say I can’t cook/bake for shit.
For the Cupcakes:
2 cups self-raising flour // 1/2 tsp baking powder // 1/2 tsp salt // 1 1/2 cup sugar // 1 stick unsalted butter // 4 eggs // 3/4 cup of buttermilk // 1/2 cup lemon juice // zest of lemon
Filling and topping:
Raspberry jam // Whipping cream // Raspberries
Before i go on to how to make them i wanted to mention these cute measuring cups/spoons that i found in asda for jus £1 each!!
HOW TO MAKE
1// Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl
2// In a larger bowl, mix together butter and sugar until fluffy
3// Beat in eggs one at a time
4// Mix in the flour mixture and buttermilk
5// Mix in the lemon juice and zest
6// Bake at 350 (160 c) for 20 minutes
7// Once cooled, use a small knife to cut out the middle, leaving a little bit to put back on top after
8// Fill the hole with jam and cover with the little cut out
9// Whip the whipping cream and put on top of cakes
10// Add a raspberry if you fancy
I am really pleased at how these turned out for me, they were super easy to make and so yummy that i ate 4 in a row (oops).
Here is the original pin that i had found this from… There were so many other cupcakes on this list, and after making the lemon ones i’m definitely going to have to attempt all the others.
