Lemon cupcakes

Have a great Friday, I wish you!

Today it is here with me quite springlike / summer, because there is a very citrus-heavy recipe. That I love lemons, I've been with my delicious Lemon role told. Whether freshly squeezed, as a cake or salad: the case of lemons I never say no!

Sure, I was immediately excited then, when I from the monthly series of Ursl Blog “Soap Kitchen Style” have learned: “1 in 3”. Here, on three different blogs – one of which is the self of Ursl – on a particular topic, each posted a suitable recipe. This month's theme citrus.

I immediately had some ideas on this topic and could not at first decide on a citrus fruit. Finally, I chose lemon, because with this you can conjure both delicious entrees and irresistible desserts. Since Ursl had a dessert of me wished I opted for these lemon cupcakes.
