RECIPE and BAKED by My Cooking Addiction


1. Heat oven to 350°F. Prepare cupcake tins. (This recipe yielded 15 cupcakes for me.)

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

3. In stand mixer with paddle attachment (starting on low), cream together room temperature butter and sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low and add in eggs, one at a time and mix until just blended.

4. Add in vanilla, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and milk and mix for about 30 seconds on low. Slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

5. Remove from mixer then fold in lemon zest with spatula.

6. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups. 

7. Transfer muffin tin to oven and bake until tops are just dry to the touch, 18 to 20 minutes.

8. Use a pastry brush to brush remaining 1 tablespoon of lemon juice over the top of the cupcake while they are still warm.

9. Let cupcakes cool completely before serving!
