Vanilla Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream

Happy Easter! I decided to create a cute Easter cupcake today to share with you all.

Recipe – 

1 stick of real butter at room temperature

1 cup plus 2 tblsp. sugar

2 large eggs at room temperature

2 tsp. vanilla

2 cups flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. baking soda

dash of salt

3/4 cup buttermilk

 

Directions – 

Mix butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add one egg at a time until incorporated, add vanilla. Scrape down bowl.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

In a separate bowl, sift or mix with a fork – flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt.

If you do not have buttermilk, make your own by mixing 1 cup of milk and 2 tblsp. of white vinegar, let sit for a minute.

Alternate buttermilk and flour mixture, do not overmix.

Fill paper cups 3/4 full and bake for 16-18 minutes depending on how full your cups are and the altitude.

Buttercream Frosting – https://rawbasil.wordpress.com/2013/11/25/buttercream-frosting/

For lemon frosting, add 1/4 tsp. lemon extract, add more if you want a stronger lemon taste.

I used the cadbury eggs and sifted cocoa on top.

Let cool, frost & ENJOY! I hope you all have a blessed Easter!
