Anything small is super cute! Don’t you agree? I made these cute little mini cupcakes for enrichment night for the ladies of my ward. Perfect for a bite size treat and each one has so much flavor it will be so hard to stop at one!
Ingredients: Click to print
2 2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup salted butter, softened
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons grated lemon zest
4 to 6 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice ( it just depends how strong of lemon flavor you want)
4 eggs
1 cup plain Greek yogurt or fat free sour cream
2 Tablespoons milk
icing:
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 to 3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick butter, softened
Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake tins with liners.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, and lemon zest for about 5 minutes, until smooth and light. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl. Add in the yogurt and the milk and mix until blended.
  • Add in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl between each egg. Mix well.
  • Add in the flour to the butter mixture. Mix until the batter is smooth and light. Add in the lemon juice for about a minute until blended.
  • Spoon the batter into the liners, about 3/4 full. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the center of a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the icing ingredients. When the cupcakes are cooled, drizzle on the icing.

I think it would be super adorable to put these mini cupcakes in a 6 pack egg carton or cut a normal carton in half, and decorate the top with your cute scrapbook pieces and deliver them to family and friends for Easter!
