Lemon Cup Cakes

The cupcake was designed to conveniently serve a single person as it is baked in a muffin tin or cupcake paper. It was originally known as the 1-2-3-4 cake because the recipe called for 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour, 4 eggs along with other ingredients such as milk and baking soda. Cupcake flavors are endless but one of the most delicious is the humble lemon cupcake. This lemon cupcake recipe only takes 30 minutes to make. This lightly sweet cupcake is perfect for an afternoon tea or coffee. What makes this lemon cupcake more delicious is the apricot glaze.


• 115 grams of softened butter
• 115 grams of fine sugar
• 1 tbsp lemon zest
• 1 large egg
• 2 egg yolks
• 125 grams of plain flour
• ½ tsp baking powder
• 25 grams of milk

Apricot Glaze:

• 200 grams of apricot jam
• 50 milliliters of water


This recipe takes about 25 to 30 minutes to make. Serves 8 cupcakes.

Put softened butter in a mixing bowl.
Using a wire whisk, cream butter for about 3 seconds or until smooth.
