Lemon Cupcake

I baked lemon cupcake last week using the recipe of calamansi cupcake. I don’t have calamansi so I used lemon instead. But I think, the recipe needs ½ cup lemon juice because the taste is not lemony.

Lemon Cupcake Recipe

1 cup softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup lemon juice
Lemon zest from 3 lemons that I used
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350F
Line muffin pan with paper cups
Sift flour and baking powder
Cream butter and sugar until light and smooth
Add eggs one at a time to the cream mixture
Add the flour mixture a little at a time
Add the vanilla slowly
Add lemon juice and lemon zest
Incorporate all ingredients
Pour batter into muffin pans
Bake for 20 minutes


  1. What type of icing would fit this kaya? It looks good a. Maybe nga you should have added more juice to make it taste more lemony? =)

    1. Not sure, I'm not fond of frosting kasi. :)
