Description

Pucker up! These tart cupcakes will get your tastebuds in gear for the warm weather ahead.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CUPCAKES:
  • 2 sticks Butter, Softened
  • 2 cups Granulated Sugar
  • 4 whole Large Eggs, At Room Temperature
  • 1 whole Large Egg White
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 2-¾ cups Flour
  • 2-½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 can (12 Oz.)Frozen Lemonade Concentrate, Thawed
  • _____
  • FOR THE ICING:
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 1 package (8 Oz.) Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 3 Tablespoons Key Lime Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Key Lime Zest
  • 4 cups Confectioners Sugar

Preparation

FOR CUPCAKES:

Preheat oven to 350º. Line 2 standard muffin pans with baking cups.

Using a mixer, beat 2 sticks butter and the granulated sugar until creamy. Gradually beat in eggs, egg white and oil. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt. On low speed, start adding the dry ingredients into your wet ingredients, a little at a time. Then add the lemonade concentrate, mixing until fully incorporated.

Fill each cupcake liner about three quarters full with batter. Bake until the cupcakes spring back when gently touched, about 15-20 minutes (I did mine for 15 because I like them a little underdone). Let cool completely before icing.

FOR ICING:

Cream butter, cream cheese, juice and zest in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add 4 cups confectioner’s sugar, one cup at a time. Continue beating until light and fluffy.

If icing is too thin, add additional confectioner’s sugar 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.

I made these with limeade and added a tablespoon of lemon extract. They taste like the lemon part of lemon meringue pie. They’re good enough without frosting, but I might add it after a day or so if there are any left.
