More lemons today for you, my dears! This recipe features the lightest and most perfect vanilla cupcake recipe I’ve ever tasted. Seriously. And they are so easy to make! No ‘room temperature eggs’ or fancy ingredients. They are my new favorite thing and I’m going to make them again and again.

This tasty morsel of a cupcake is stuffed with silky lemon curd and topped with a light and slightly tart lemon buttercream. The combination of the three components is absolute perfection.

If you’re wondering how I put lemon curd into cupcakes, it’s so easy! Just use an apple corer to gently twist out the center of the cupcake. Then add the filling of your choice and add frosting. This also works if you want to stuff the cupcakes with buttercream frosting.

For the vanilla cupcakes:

  • 1 1/2 cup (150 grams) cake flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick) at room temp
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • For the lemon curd (makes extra):
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice, about 2 lemons
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch table salt
  • For the Meyer lemon buttercream:
  • 1/2 cup egg whites (about 3 large eggs)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1 inch pieces

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Special equipment:
