  • Lemon cupcakes with citrus syrup - These were...

    Submitted by Leaps on 30. July 2018 - 14:43.

    Lemon cupcakes with citrus syrup - These were fabulous, not too sweet and just the right amount of tartness. I cooked exactly as per the recipe but used ramekins greased with butter instead of silicone cupcake moulds. Note to self: the cupcakes are easier to remove from the ramekins while still warm. I will be sure to make these again! Thanks for sharing!

    Submitted by themartinfamily76 on 31. January 2017 - 09:12.

    Maybe I need to do a class where they make these because I must be doing something wrong. They were rubbery but the taste was there. I was so deflated about the look and texture of them that I didn't even bother icing them. I would love to know what I did wrong, I followed the recipe exactly.

    Submitted by ronellem on 3. July 2016 - 00:04.

    These lemon cupcakes yielded 15 . They are so easy to make and are really tasty. Cream cheese icing with grated peel in, is a winner!!!

    The second time around I did not ice them. and I used much less sugar for the syrup, about 120 g.,plus the juice of 2 lemons,  as we prefer the tartness.

    Submitted by Cozzy on 5. September 2015 - 17:06.

    Absolutely Delicious!!!! so easy to make these before dinner then the syrup after dinner just before serving... with Icecream....

    I made them with the zest of 2 lemons because I was using 2 for the syrup, & a little bit less sugar in the syrup and it made it so tangy.

    Everybody loved them!!!

    Thanks heaps

  • These were super easy and

    Submitted by jacksmum on 9. March 2015 - 19:27.

    These were super easy and delicious. I made them with a combination of both lemon and lime zest and juice. The other thing I did slightly differently was when I took the cooked cakes out of the Varoma I poked about 12 holes into each one with a skewer and then poured the syrup on the cupcake and into the holes. I then let them cool down so that the cake had plenty of time to suck up the syrup.  I then reheated them in the microwave quickly and served them warm with icecream ...... YUMMY!!

    Yum!  Tried these at a cooking class and knew that my hubby would love them. Hubby loved then and between 4 of us there was only two after we all had our fill.  So yum!  perhaps served with ice cream or something else, this dish would go further. The syrup alone was a little off to us, then we tried it with the cakes - as is intended - and it was a marriage made in heaven.
