If you’re like me and love the taste of summer lemonade, you will love my Creamy Dreamy Lemonade Cupcakes.
Lemonade is one of those things that I just can’t seem to get enough of in the summertime. The thirst-quenching flavor seems to do the trick on a hot day like nothing else. I love the flavor so much that I decided to make Lemonade Cupcakes. I combined the sweet-tart taste of lemonade with a creamy whipped frosting...it’s pure cupcake heaven!
I found that using a powdered lemonade drink mix gives this recipe a distinct tart flavor and a texture that doesn’t interfere with the texture of the cupcake. I also prefer this recipe with Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix because it has the right amount of richness to stand up to the lemonade. Cream cheese in the frosting reminds me of the lemonade Creamsicles that I used to get on the boardwalk in New Jersey when I was a kid.
I recently made a batch of these cupcakes and sent my sister home with some. She called me that night and said they were the best cupcakes she had ever eaten. Now she wants me to make them for her birthday!
If you like lemons, then you will love these cupcakes. They are great for barbecues as well as Sunday brunches.
