Lemon Curd Cupcakes

It’s all about ‘lemon’ in HoniesKitchen lately – maybe not! But, it seems to be.

After using Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Lemon curd and Limoncello in my recently made pots of Lemon Fool – nobody was fooling me – that tasted tangyummylicious …. I came across some of Mrs Darlington’s Legendary Lemon Curd, while at Silvesters Farm in Euxton, Chorley today and …. a neat little recipe for Lemon Curd Cupcakes to boot.

What a coincidence! I just ‘have’ to make some, yes!

Cupcake ingredients:

  • 350g self raising flour
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 2 lemons (zested & juiced)
  • 2 eggs (free range) beaten
  • 150ml soured cream
  • 150g Lemon Curd (always choose a good one)
  • 100g butter

Cream Topping ingredients:

  • 150ml double cream
  • 3 tbls Lemon curd
  • Lemon zest (for decoration)

Method:

  1. Heat the oven to 180 C fan/200 C / Gas 6
  2. Stir the beaten eggs with the soured cream and lemon curd.
  3. Blend the flour, sugar, lemon juice & zest, egg mixture and butter together.
  4. Spoon into 12 muffin cases
  5. Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins until golden and risen
  6. Remove from the oven, leave in tray for 5 mins and then transfer cases onto a wire rack – allow to cool.

For the topping:

  1. Mix the lemon curd and cream together and whip until thick and creamy (about 5 mins)
  2. Spoon the mixture onto the tops of the cakes and decorate with lemon zest on each

This is a quick & easy to prepare recipe and takes little time to cook. Have a go and let me know what you think.

Get the kids involved – they can:

  • Help with the measuring – good basic maths
  • Crack the eggs – sometimes messy, but with practice builds confidence in the kitchen and it’s fun
  • Stir the ingredients – see how it changes colour consistency
  • Spoon the mixture into the cases – good fine and gross motor skills as well as great co-ordination and guessing the right amount

It’s more fun when the kids join in and they learn good lifeskills – great way to get them to eat what they bake as well as quality time.
