Cami's Lemon Drop Cupcakes

I think this is one of my favorite Baked recipes we've done so far. I mean, it is right up there with the German Chocolate Cake. So, as you can tell, I made cupcakes instead of the cake. They are easier to divide up and share than a cake. Not that you need to share these.

As you can see I put the curd inside. After they were cooled I cut a circle in the top and emptied out a little bit of the center of the cupcake. I put about 1 1/2 teaspoons in each cupcake. I could have put a little more I think but I was worried about getting too close to the bottom of the cupcake. I then popped the top back on and frosted them. You would never know I cut the hole. I love the little surprise in the center. I think I am going to try it with different flavored cupcakes and filling.
The flavor is so good! It is very lemony but I like it that way. The curd is delicious. I didn't put mine through a sieve. I'll be honest, I was lazy. I actually like the texture of it. The cakes turned out very fluffy and just right I think. I baked mine for 23 minutes. The frosting is good. Not too sweet but just right. This frosting would be great for piping if you so desired. To sum it up, I loved them. The Young Women I work with loved them and my husband's coworkers loved them.

Hey Cami! I'm doing cupcakes tonight :) I was wondering, did you 1/2 the recipe? How many cupcakes did it produce?

I actually did the full recipe and it made 24 cupcakes. I can't wait to see how yours turn out. Yummy!
