  • Cooking Time: 20
  • Servings: 12
  • Preparation Time: 15

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. softened butter
  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
  • 2/3 cup ground sugar
  • ½ cup plain flour
  • 1/3 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 300 deg. F. Line a 12 cupcake tray with cupcake papers.
  • Beat butter, cream cheese, lemon rind, sugar and eggs until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Sift the two flours and fold into the cake mixture. Beat well.
  • Divide the mixture equally between the 12 cup cases and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Tips:
  • How about topping the cupcakes with lemon butter icing?
  • To make a lemon butter icing, cream butter in a bowl until very soft. Gradually add in confectioner's sugar and beat into the butter, along with lemon zest and enough lemon juice to soften the icing, to a spreadable consistency. Spread on top of each cupcake once they have cooled.
