These are delicious! So flavorful and so moist! Thank you so much for sharing! Made a few alterations - added a couple tablespoons of minced strawberry to the batter and omitted the lemon extract (as I didn't have any - I didn't miss it, the lemon taste was still very present because I added a little extra zest). I also used Greek yogurt (vanilla instead of plain because the store didn't have a suitable plain yogurt) - this might have made it so the batter was denser and didn't rise as much, but it still added a lot of moistness. My fiance said these are the best cupcakes he's ever had!
Wow. If you love lemon, these are a must try! I used a different frosting so I am only reviewing the cake part of this recipe. I doubled this and made two 8' round cake pans. This is a dense but moist cake. If I made it again I think I would do 3 cakes for more height, since the cake doesn't rise much.
I loved this recipe! I actually made it into a 8inch cake for someone's birthday and people loved it!! It is delicious, moist, and not too sweet! I did not use the lemon zest as I do not have it, but as in a previous comment, I also noticed it was not needed. Also, it did not rise as much, but it still worked out perfectly for my cake!
These cupcakes are absolutely delicious. Make a double batch - they go fast.
I made these last year for my daughter's summer birthday party. They were a hit! I made them again last night as mini cupcakes for my sister. This frosting recipe is one of the best! Keeping this recipe for future use as well!!!
Ugh! Disgusting! Made 2 batches and they were awful! Maybe the directions need to be more specific? Maybe the butter was too hot when I out it in? Maybe with more specific instructions these would have been good. Mine turned out gross!
This is very similar to my strawberry lemonade cupcake recipie. I am an advanced baker/ decorater and I am still to young to move out of my mommy's house. But hey, that's what being a kid is about.
