  • Made these for the first time

    Submitted by thermobsetion on 1. September 2016 - 14:16.

    Made these for the first time today for the cake stall at my son's sports carnival tomorrow. The house is just filled with such a beautiful aroma, even my husband commented on it! I have an excess of lemons from our tree so I've gone ahead and made a second batch for us to keep at home too. Can't wait to try the complete product although I know it will be amazing because all the components are so far

    These cupcakes were SO light and fluffy and the icing really complemented them beautifully. I've made them 3 times already and they're a real hit. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  • Desperately need to buy some

    Submitted by Thermo Loving Liv on 31. August 2015 - 18:18.

    Desperately need to buy some groceries, so unfortunately I didn't have enough ingredients to complete this recipe. I was only able to make the actual cupcakes, minus the curd and icing!! The cupcakes on their own were devine! I only got my thermomix last week and prior to that I've never been able to make cupcakes that aren't dry and stuck to the casings. I will definitely be making these again!! Ps - I quietly sat in the kitchen eating a lot of the batter while my 3 year old was in the lounge, and even after eating a lot of the scrumptious batter I reckon I could have actually made 18-20 cupcakes.

  • So lovely to hear you enjoyed

    Submitted by evelina68 on 13. August 2015 - 21:22.

    So lovely to hear you enjoyed the recipe  tmrc_emoticons.)  I tend to make the curd a few hours or a day before so it sets more as it cools.  Glad to hear the cupcakes retained their texture.  They are a favourite in our house.  I often just make the cupcake base for the kids and ice with a plain icing sugar, lemon juice icing tmrc_emoticons.)

  • I made these for my husband

    Submitted by rachelpctaylor on 12. August 2015 - 19:57.

    I made these for my husband to take to work this week.  I only used about half of the curd mixture so I'm planning to use that for a pudding.  I was concerned about how runny the curd was And if that would affect the cakes.  Freshly prepared they were delicious and I tried one the next day to see if they got soggy in the middle.  The cake maintained a firm texture and they tasted wonderful.  A little extra work than a plain cupcake but well worth it.  Got the thumbs up from hubby and his workmates too.  Thanks evelina68!
