Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Curd Filling

One of my favourites flavours to bake with after chocolate has got to be lemon. I’ve made these lemon cupcakes multiple times and I’m so glad I’ve finally got round to sharing the recipe with you! Everything about these cupcakes is lemon, from the lemon zest infused sponge, to the sweet lemon flavoured buttercream and of course the gooey lemon curd centre. I’ve used all yellow decorations to let everyone know that these cupcakes are all about lemon!

For the sponge

  • 175 g Butter
  • 175 g Caster sugar
  • 2 Lemons zested
  • 3 Eggs large
  • 175 g Self raising flour
  • 1 jar of Lemon curd

For the buttercream

  • 200 g Butter or Baking spread
  • 400 g Icing sugar
  • 2 tsp Lemon extract

For decoration

  • Yellow 100s and 1000s optional
  • Lemon jelly slices optional


  1. Pre heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 and line a muffin tin with 12 yellow cupcake cases (if you can't find yellow ones any colour will do)
  2. Cream together the butter, sugar and lemon zest until light and fluffy
