Easy and Best Lemon Cupcakes Recipe

– Mixing Bowls – Measuring Spoons and Cups – Cupcake Tray and Liners – Whisk or Electric Hand Mixer – Zester or Grater – Citrus Juicer – Spatula – Oven and Oven Mitts – Wire rack


– 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour – 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder – Pinch of salt – 1 cup unsalted butter softened – 1 cup granulated sugar – 4 large eggs For the Lemon Frosting: – 2 cups powdered sugar – ½ cup unsalted butter softened – Juice of 1 lemon


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a cupcake tray with paper liners. 2. In a bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Set aside. 3. In a separate large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.


4. Add the eggs one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. 5. Mix in the lemon zest and juice for that burst of citrus flavor. 6. Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until just combined. Be careful not to overmix. 7. Spoon the batter into the cupcake liners, filling each about two-thirds full.


8. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 9. While the cupcakes are baking, prepare the lemon frosting. In a bowl, combine powdered sugar, softened butter, and lemon juice. Beat until smooth and creamy.


10. Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, generously frost each one with the lemon frosting. 11. Optional: Garnish with a twist of lemon zest for an extra touch. 12. Enjoy your homemade Lemon Cupcakes!
