0/9 Instructions
  • Preheat the oven to Gas mark 4/180°C/160°C fan.
  • Mix the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Cream together the butter, sugar, cordial and lemon zest until light and fluffy, then gradually add in the eggs until incorporated.
  • Gently mix in the flour and baking powder until just lightly mixed. Spoon the mixture into your cupcake cases.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through and then allow to cool on a wire rack.
  • Use a cupcake corer or a knife to make a hole in the middle of each cupcake.
  • Fill the holes with lemon curd. You can do this using a spoon or put the lemon curd into a small piping bag, snip the end off and pipe it in.
  • Make the buttercream by beating the icing sugar, butter, and cordial together until very pale, fluffy and creamy.
  • Put the buttercream into a large piping bag fitted with a nozzle of your choice and pipe it onto the cupcakes.
  • Decorate with a topping of your choice - enjoy!
