Lemon Cupcake with Lemon Buttercream

Lemon Cupcakes- the best white cake batter from scratch with a hint of lemon, topped with a #lemon buttercream frosting! #cupcakes www.shugarysweets.com

I am trying real hard to finish sharing some of my recipes from this year so I can get to sharing some holiday treats with you! I have been baking up a storm and I feel guilty that so many of these great recipes get put on the shelf because a seasonal recipe takes precedence. So I get it. Lemon isn’t the “seasonal” flavor right now.

But here’s the thing. In my book, if I don’t make something with chocolate, it’s because I have a taste for lemon. I love all things lemon, any time of year. So I am hoping there are more people like me out there!

People who eat lemon cupcakes while putting out Christmas decorations with Thanksgiving centerpieces on the table.

Hello? Still there? Good!

If you’re NOT that person, then save this recipe for a more fitting time in your life. That’s cool with me. Just be sure to make this, it’s amazing. HONEST.

Lemon Cupcake with Lemon Buttercream

Yield: about 30 cupcakes

Sweet lemon cupcakes made from my favorite, from scratch, white cake recipe. Topped with a soft lemon buttercream frosting!

Ingredients

    For the Cupcakes:
  • 5 egg whites, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 lemons, zested
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cup cake flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • For the Frosting:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream

Instructions

  1. In small bowl, mix egg whites, 1/4 cup buttermilk and lemon zest. Set aside.
  2. In mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Add in dry ingredients and mix until combined. Slowly add in egg white mixture. Beat in remaining buttermilk.
  3. Prepare cupcake tins with paper cupcake liners. Fill liners half full and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove and cool in pan 5 minutes then transfer to cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. For the frosting, beat butter for 3-5 minutes until pale in color. Add powdered sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice (about 2 Tbsp from fresh lemon) and cream. Beat for 3-5 minutes until fluffy.
  5. Frost cupcakes by filling a pastry bag with tip and pipe on the frosting. ENJOY.

I made these yesterday for a holiday party. Everyone loved them. I also used a 2D tip for the icing, but my lemon zest clogged it up. As a result, the icing wasn’t as pretty, but with some gold sprinkles on too, no one knew the difference.

I made these last night for a party that my friend is having. I doubled the recipe because there are going to be so many guests (note to self/others: do two separate batches next time because my Kitchen-Aid mixer could hardly handle it!) They are AMAZING. The flavor and texture is perfect. Light and fluffy with just the right amount of lemon. I left them in about 30-60 seconds longer because some of them were a little underdone at 15 minutes and as a result, they collapsed a little. I haven’t frosted them yet, but if the frosting is like the cake, I know it’ll be perfect. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Brittany. I used a large 2D tip and starting in the center and swirling upwards (like an icecream cone) just piped it on. Takes practice, but you have lots of cupcakes to work with in this recipe :)

susan February 23, 2013 at 11:11 am

hello! I’ve just done making the frosting but it was not a success :(( can you tell me where i’ve gone wrong? I thought maybe i overbeat the butter so it was already runny before i added the rest? or could it be that i divided the recipe ingredients by 4?

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets February 23, 2013 at 11:18 am

Without being there I wish I could tell you! By beating the butter it definitely should NOT have turned runny. I would say maybe the butter wasn’t right? Was it unsalted butter (NOT margarine?). Dividing the batch shouldn’t matter, as long as all the proportions were right. Sorry I’m no help!

could it be that i use a substitute heavy cream? still so confused, I did use unsalted butter but it did not turn pale an definitely not white like in the pictures. Sigh.

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets February 23, 2013 at 12:35 pm

Hmmm, I think it must be something with the butter you used, because once you beat it, it should be very pale yellow (and NOT runny). Maybe switch brands?

Hello! Love the looks of this recipe. QUESTION…..can this bater be made WITHOUT the lemon? Used as a white cake? Maybe just adding a little vanilla? Looking for a great white cake recipe! I make Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate cake and I LOVE the batter, but wish sometimes that I could make it without the cocoa. Not sure if it would turn out right. Thanks. Can’t wait to hear from you.

Hello! I have one quick question-it appears that the lemons for the cupcakes themselves are zested only-the juice isn’t used-am I right? The only actual lemon juice you use is for the frosting-right?

Thanks-these look just LOVELY!

aimee @ shugarysweets April 6, 2013 at 6:44 pm

Correct. You will have some naked zested lemons from the cake portion. I usually slice them up and put them in a big pitcher of water. But, you are correct. The only juice is in the frosting.

Reply

Lisa July 22, 2013 at 12:14 pm

Clelia, Cake flour is lighter than AP (all purpose) flour….if you have access to corn starch you can use the following substitution: 1 cup cake flour = 3/4 cup (12 tbsp) AP flour + 2 tbsp cornstarch, sifted together. However if you don’t have access to cornstarch, many baking tips online even suggest substituting 1 cup – 2 tbsp AP flour & sifting it 2-3 times to lighten the texture. Hope this helps!

I made these cupcakes for my grandmother’s 89th birthday!! She and I both have an affinity for lemon sweets, and these were perfect! I made regular sized cupcakes and mini cupcakes. The mini cupcakes I cooked for 11 minutes. I topped all with the fantastic lemon buttercream frosting and either a blackberry or raspberry, then served with a choice of red raspberry or blackberry ice cream. The family LOVED them!! I will definitely be making these again soon!!
