My Lemon Limoncello Cupcakes Recipe is bright and zingy and full of sunshine! Lemony cupcakes brushed with a Limoncello syrup, then topped with a beautiful swirl of Limoncello spiked buttercream. Pure sunshine, pure summer, pure heaven!
So if you’ve been here before, you may have come across a few of my other lemon loves! From my Lemon Cupcakes filled with my delicious Lemon Curd to my Lemon Cookies, Lemon Squares (both these are perfect for picnics!), and my showstopping Lemon Blueberry Doughnuts, you’re actually rather spoilt for choice! 😘
Given I’ve shared so many beautiful lemon bakes with you all, I figured it was time to make it a little more “grown-up”. On a lazy sunny Sunday not too long ago, sitting in our garden watching the children play and enjoying a cheeky Limoncello, I knew the answer was staring up at me! And so here we are, and I’m sharing with you today my Lemon Limoncello Cupcakes Recipe! 🍋
How to make my Lemon Limoncello Cupcakes Recipe
There are a few steps in making this Limoncello cake recipe, but really it’s fairly straightforward.
You simply make your cupcakes, as usual, then whilst they’re baking, you prepare a beautiful Limoncello syrup. As soon as your cupcakes are out of the oven, prick them and brush really generously with your syrup. This keeps them super moist, but also adds to the beautiful boozy lemon flavour 🥂 Then, once cool, top with your buttercream and garnish with a quartered slice of lemon.
Beautiful and totally worth being patient for! 😘
Hope the sun is shining on you, wherever you are, and hope these Lemon Limoncello Cupcakes will bring a little extra sunshine and joy in your life too 😊
Happy baking, my friends x
