I am so ready for spring. Here in southern california February is our most rainy month (usually:) so once March begins I am gearing up for spring! And to me, nothing taste like spring more than citrus.
Ingredients: 1 cup flour, 2 tablespoons cornstarch, 1 teaspoon baking soda, pinch of salt, 3/4 cup sugar, 2 eggs (at room temperature), 4 tablespoons melted butter, 1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed), 1-2 tablespoons lemon zest, 1/4 cup oil (i used olive, vegetable or peanut would do fine too) and 1/2 cup milk.
In a large bowl combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt and sugar. In a smaller mixing bowl whisk together eggs, melted butter, lemon juice, oil, milk and lemon zest. Pour wet ingredients into the dry and mix well. Fill cupcake sleeves 3/4 full of batter and bake at 350 F for 15-20 minutes. I then "cheated" and frosted them using a store bought vanilla frosting and garnished with a little left over lemon zest. I have yet to master frosting making, mine usually turns out a bit lumpy:(
Enjoy this little piece of spring time. Yum!
