Easy Lemon Cupcake Recipe
There are few flavors that I love more than fresh lemon — from lemonade and lemon meringue pie to lemon bars (and I use lemon essential oil often, too!).
These easy lemon cupcakes have both fresh squeezed lemon juice and fresh lemon zest for an extra punch of lemon-y tartness. These are sure to please at an Easter potluck or baby shower! You might even be able to pass them off as healthy enough for easy brunch fare 😉 especially if you pair them with these lemon waffles or lemon poppyseed muffins!
