If you’re a fan of lemon cake, you are going to go absolutely CRAZY for my lemon cupcakes with lemon curd. Moist lemon cupcakes, filled with tangy curd and topped with a swirl of sweet lemon buttercream. Oh and don’t forget a drizzle of even more lemon curd. Totally scrumptious!
The cold and often wet first months of the year can leave many people feeling as dreary as the weather here in the UK. I often find myself dreaming of warmer days in the coming months myself. And, of course, hoping for some sunshine too!
For me, lemons are the perfect sunny, mood-lifting flavour, especially when I’m baking. These lemon drizzle cookies are perfect for a quick-bake lemon fix, if that’s what you’re after.
I especially love lemon curd too: it’s so versatile! In our family, we enjoy it with scones, on toast or crackers, or even with pancakes/crêpes and berries for breakfast. Soooo good!!
These cupcakes are a triple whammy of this beautiful flavour: bright moist lemony cupcakes, filled with delicious zingy lemon curd. And the soft sweet buttercream on top just completes this beautiful trio. Perfectly balanced lemon flavour with sweetness. Absolutely delicious.
As is the eternal case in our home, these never hang around for long! They are barely able to remain untouched whilst cooling 😆 So once they have been filled and iced, they’re pretty much always gone within a day!
I’ve made these for friends, parties and even bake sales. Or just because we all need a little treat ourselves! Whatever your reason, I’m confident you’ll love these little beauties!
Thanks for joining me today in my kitchen. I hope you will enjoy making and demolishing my lemon cupcakes with lemon curd as much as my family and I do! 😊
Happy baking, friends!
