Lemon cupcakes

Cooking therapy ?

Do you ever have that urge to just bake something sweet? For me, there is something oh so satisfying about the fluffiness of a good muffin. The smell that fills the house, the process of weighing the ingredients and creating a tasty mixture, the ‘rmmmmm’ of the oven in the background, the exploration and creating. Tinkering the recipe to make the taste ideal to your wishes. It’s all in your hands! You are the creator!

So know you know I feel like the man who makes gingerbread men from Shrek when I cook- here are the ingredients!

Lemon cupcakes

130g Gluten-free flour (I used Schär.. and yes there are “better” GF flours but they just turn out best with this one)
110g Butter (melty/soft)
110g Sugar (I’ve tried coconut, raw and muscovado all taste great they just change the colour)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp guarkernmehl
2 tsp baking powder
100g white chocolate (I’ve tried up to 300g- in this case- the more the better)
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice (from an actual lemon, not the bottled stuff)
The zest of 1 whole organic lemon (some days I feel a bit extra- then I add extra zest up to 3 lemons works)

Smash everything in a bowl and mix
(Best instructions ever)
Bake on 180 for 15-18 mins (but check it yourself constantly after 12 minutes)
Makes 16-12 cupcakes! (Depending on how full you like them
