white sugar, or more to taste
1 1/2 cups
milk, or more as needed
confectioners' sugar, or more as needed
it turned out much better than I was expecting. It was a little too sweet.
Fantastic! Super easy, fantastic lemon flavour. I sent a dozen to my sons preschool and everyone loved them, my son asked if we could make them the next day. I am not a decorator at all, hence why my icing and decorating leaves something to be desired lol, but I did follow this recipe exactly for both the cupcake and the frosting and both are awesome. Perhaps more lemon flavour (Im a lemonaholic) and I may try using coconut extract in the frosting next time too.
I am new to baking. I loved this recipe...it was a lot simpler then a lot I was finding. It seems a little dense...trying to figure out how to fix that next time...I did not find them too sweet, They may need a little less flour..or just more milk..it is a good recipe to use as a base for other flavors too, it seems. I did not use lemon extract. I used concentrated lemon juice...(it gave it a lighter lemon flavor...)..for a strong lemon flavor I would suggest using actual fresh lemons. I did not use the frosting recipe...I wanted cream cheese frosting...I find a very easy recipe on foodnetwork.com.
I think I will start using this recipe for cupcakes.
I did add a little more sugar, not a lot more.
I will see if my fiance likes it. I filled the cupcake liners almost all the way..maybe 3/4 full and they did round up pretty nice.
The batter was a bit thicker too, the last ones I made had a very watery batter...which is why I think these may have needed a little more milk..
