lemon blueberry cupcakes :)

here's a treat for you all... i made these a few weeks ago, but just got around to publishing this post now... i've been busy, and i almost forgot about these babies...

these are a lovely blend of a lightly sweetened lemon yogurt cake, topped with a smooth lemon cream cheese-buttercream, and a few lucky ones were piled high with some honey coated blueberries...

lemon yogurt cake: (makes about 16 cupcakes)


1 1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 stick of butter (melted and cooled)

1 cup of sugar

2 egg whites

2 tsp. lemon extract (or more depending on how you like it)

1 1/8 cups plain or vanilla yogurt

zest of 1 lemon


1. preheat your oven to 350, and prep your cupcake tins

2. whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt

3. combine the sugar with the lemon zest and rub together with your fingers until sugar is fragrant and moist

4. in a stand mixer, combine and mix thoroughly the melted butter and the sugar on medium... once combined, add in the lemon extract along with the egg whites, and mix until smooth

5. now with mixer on low, alternately add in the flour and the yogurt, beginning and ending with the flour

6. bake the cupcakes for 10 minutes, rotate pan and then bake for another 10, or until light golden brown or when a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean...

7. let cool and top with a generous swirl of buttercream

8. eat, enjoy and let it go to your thighs :) happy baking everyone :)
