what you need
  • 2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon zest (or 1 tsp lemon extract)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups lemon curd (approx.)
make it
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar and lemon zest until light and fluffy. Adding the lemon zest early helps release more of its flavor. Blend in eggs one at a time, followed by vanilla extract. Stir in 1/3 of the flour mixture, followed by half of the milk. Add another 1/3 of the flour and the remaining milk, then stir in the remaining flour, mixing only until no streaks of flour remain.

Divide batter evenly into prepared muffin cups, filling each approx 2/3 to 3/4 full. Bake for 16-19 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top springs back when lightly pressed. Cool completely on a wire rack.

To fill, use a melon baller to scoop a small hole in the top of each muffin. Alternatively, you can use a small knife to carve a small cone of cake out. Fill the depression with 2 tsp. lemon curd. Serve shortly after filling. Unfilled cupcakes can be stored in an airtight container until ready to fill and serve.
