Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes

I got the idea to make lemon cupcakes and then wanted to add another tasting element.  Raspberry compliments lemon well. 

Lemon Cupcake Recipe

-1.5 cups flour

– 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder

-6 tablespoons unsalted butter

-3/4 cups of sugar

-2 large eggs

-1 tablespoon lemon extract

-1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of milk

Beat butter and sugar.  Add eggs and lemon extract followed by the milk, and dry ingredients.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.


Lemon Icing

-3 cups confectioners sugar

-1/2 cup butter

-2 tablespoon lemon juice

-1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Combine well.

*helpful hint- Let the icing harden.  Place small star tip in a bag and fill with icing.

Make small stars around the cupcake.  Then add canned raspberry preserve in between the stars.
