  • 1 1/3 cups unsalted butter, softened

  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice

Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 T milk

  3. Fill cupcake pans, with or without wrappers. If you are not using cupcake liners make sure to butter and flour each cup to prevent sticking. (or use baking spray)
  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Makes about 13 cupcakes.
  5. While the cupcakes are baking combine 3/4 cup sugar and 3/4 cup lemon juice in small saucepot over medium heat and stir until sugar is melted. Remove your syrup from heat.
  6. When cupcakes are done remove them from the pan and poke holes in them with a toothpick. Brush or spoon your lemon syrup over them. Let sit for about 10 minutes before glazing.

Glaze:

  1. In small bowl add chips and milk and microwave in 20 second intervals until chips are melted and smooth.
  2. Spoon glaze over the cupcakes and let set, about 20 minutes.

Frosting:

  1. Combine chips and milk in small bowl and microwave at 20 second intervals until melted. Meanwhile cream softened butter at med-high speed in mixer. When chocolate is melted add to the butter and mix until incorporated…now slowly add powdered sugar until you reach a soft frosting. It will firm up as the white chocolate cools, so be sure not to add too much powdered sugar.
  2. Frost cupcakes and you’re done!

    Hi there!
    Would love to try this recipe, however I noticed in the directions you mention adding the zest to the butter/sugar after beating it, yet there is no zest listed in the ingredients. I assume you’re calling for lemon zest – can you please verify as well as give us the amount needed? Thanks in advance…love your site!
    Kind regards, Sarah

        I fixed the issue. This post is one of my very first (totally embarrassing) and when I moved my website over to the new platform some of the pictures and recipes disappeared! Sorry!
