Saw this recipe from Kitchen 70's and been wanting to try. But I do wonder how come it is called mini lemon butter cupcakes when there is no addition of lemon juice? Anyway, I modified slightly and added vanilla essence and lime juice. Indeed it taste very nice with the citrus and butter fragrance. Really nice.
Instead of resting it for 30mins as per recipe call for, I only rested for 15mins as I can't wait as I was running thru my usual house routine. Texture is still great, soft yet filling and it is so fragrance that I think I won't mind making them again. I made them into mini bite sized again so it is easy for my toddlers at home to eat it with ease and less mess for lazy mummy.
Nxt round, I might try it in a bigger cupcake cases to see if it is still the same texture. Yummy..
