Lemon Cream Cheese CupcakesApril 1, 2008
It was a warm day! was digging in the fridge when i spotted this! Big fat lemon! 😛 nice cooling, refreshing lemonade comes to my mind! 😛 DING! let’s make something with the rind as well!
This recipe is taken from Betty Saw’s Tempt, Cupcakes to Excite. These cupcakes really excites me!! 😀 Don’t be deceive by it’s simple and plain appearance! They are simply DELICIOUS. Really good! sooooooo good! The texture of these cupcakes is so soft and light that u can easily munch a few at one go!
These come along topped with lemon glaze, but it is so good on its own, I refused to make the glaze! =X Trust me! They are just the kind of cupcakes you will proudly give away naked, unfrosted, undecorated, un-everything! 😛 just so simply good on it’s own… *blissful*
