Lemon Cupcakes
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
Zest of 2 lemons
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
Juice of two lemons almond milk, totaling 1/2 cup
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line cupcake tray with 12 cupcake liners.
In a medium bowl, cream sugar, butter and lemon zest. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.

Add the flour and baking powder to the wet ingredients. Then squeeze the juice of two lemons into a measuring cup and add enough almond milk to make up 1/2 cup. Add this to the mixture and beat until mostly smooth.

Scoop your cupcake mixture evenly in your tins and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out cleanly.

Lemon Buttercream Frosting
1/2 cup butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon extract
3-4 cups powdered sugar

Mix and cream the butter in a bowl. Then add salt, lemon juice and lemon extract. Add in the powdered sugar, half a cup at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.

Looks yummy! I tried a lemon cupcake for the first time recently and really didn't know what to expect, but it was so good! Now I'm on a complete lemon kick with meringue, squares, tarts and soon cupcakes!
