Lemon Cupcakes

Lemon Cupcakes
Or the cupcakes that never had a chance to get a frosting...Of course I was planning to make a delicious creamcheese frosting for these cupcakes but somehow they all disappeared before I got the chance to. This was a new recipe (although altered because I just can't stick to a recipe) I tried and I was quite happy with the taste (lemony and very moist) but they did not rise as expected. I have to do some testing with replacing the regular baking powder you get here in Germany with baking soda (Natron) or with using both.

125 g Flour
125 g Butter
125 g Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Tsp Baking powder
1 Tbsp Lemon zest
2 Tbsp Lemon juice
2 Tbsp Cream or Buttermilk

Store all ingredients at room temperature.
Mix butter, sugar and cream and whisk until sugar has dissolved and the mixture turns light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time while continuing beating. Add lemon juice and zest. Add sieved flour and baking powder and mix until everything is well combined. Scoop into cupcake cups and bake at 190°C (375°F) for about 15 to 20 minutes.
(As mentioned above this cupcakes did not rise using baking powder so you might wanna replace the baking powder with baking soda (Natron)...
