Meyer Lemon Cupcake Recipe

Ready to make your new favorite cupcake?! I'm so excited to share my Meyer lemon cupcake recipe that my family and neighbors are raving about. If you're new to Meyer lemons, here's a great primer I found on the difference between Meyer lemons and regular lemons.

Whether or not you take the time to read about the differences between a Meyer and regular lemon, your taste buds will tell you immediately! Meyer lemons are sweeter than conventional lemons and their skin makes a tasty and beautifully colored zest, which is why I use them in this Meyer lemon cupcake recipe.

I hope you'll try this easy cupcake recipe that is so sweet and easy to make. As many cake and cupcake recipes will insist, it's best to use room temperature ingredients as they combine more easily and make a silky smooth batter.

I bake my Meyer lemon cupcakes for 18-20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. I find I cook them a little longer because the lemon juice makes these super moist. 

I pair these cupcakes with a silky Meyer lemon buttercream frosting that takes just 5 minutes to make and pipe!

Could this new Meyer lemon cupcake recipe be your new favorite go-to cupcake recipe? Tell me on Twitter and I'll share!
