The instruction how to make Lemon Cupcakes considering Lemon Buttercream
- Preheat oven to 350u00b0F.
- Line 2 cupcake pans with cupcake paper liners. Set aside.
- Place butter, canola oil, granulated sugar, vanilla, and lemon zest in a large mixing bowl. Reserve lemons for later use. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, cream ingredients together on medium speed for 1 minute, or until smooth. Add eggs, and continue to beat for 1 minute more, until mixture is light and fluffy.
- Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into the bowl. Pour in lemon juice. Beat mixture on low until ingredients begin to come together. Slowly stream in milk and continue mixing, scraping down sides of bowl with a rubber spatula as needed, until a smooth batter forms.
- Divide batter evenly among cupcake liners in pans, filling each liner no more than 2/3 full.
- Bake cupcakes on middle rack of oven for 18-21 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Check to see that cupcakes are done. Carefully remove from oven or add time as needed.
- Allow cupcakes to cool to room temperature before frosting.
- While cupcakes cool, make frosting. Place butter, cream cheese, and lemon zest in a large mixing bowl. Beat with a mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy.
- Add powdered sugar to butter mixture in two additions, beating on low speed after each until sugar is fully incorporated. Add vanilla, heavy cream, and salt to bowl. Continue beating on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes, until frosting is light and fluffy. Beat in more heavy cream if frosting appears too thick.
- Pipe or spread frosting onto cooled cupcakes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
