Lemon and poppyseed cupcakes with a vanilla butter frosting to be precise. And they were yummy!
I thought I would share the recipe and the pictures, enjoy;
Ingredients for the Cupcakes
175g golden caster sugar
175g butter , melted and cooled a little
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, until smooth. Make sure you have a baking tray at the ready with some cupcake tins and that the oven is on, gas mark 4.
Pour the ingredients into the cupcake tins and pop them in the oven for 20-22mins, once cooked, take them out of the oven and leave them to cool. Whilst the cupcakes are cooling you can get started on the vanilla butter frosting!
Ingredients for the Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 3/4 cups icing sugar
1 tbsp light cream or milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix them together until you have a smooth butter frosting, apply to the cupcakes once they have cooled.
Once the frosting has been applied, tuck in!
