Lemon Cupcakes

Exchange Value: 0* Servings: 6 cupcakes


  • 50g butter, softened
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 115g Loprofin Mix
  • 1 tsp Loprofin Egg Replacer
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100ml Sno-Pro
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 100g butter, softened
  • 200g icing sugar
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp yellow food dye


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and line a cupcake tray with paper cases.
  2. Place the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat for 1–2 minutes, until light and creamy in texture. Thoroughly mix together with the Loprofin Mix, Loprofin Egg Replacer and baking powder.
  3. Stir the Sno-Pro into the creamed mixture until a soft smooth batter is achieved.
  4. Transfer the mixture into the cupcake cases.
  5. Bake the cupcakes in the oven for 15 minutes, until well risen and firm to touch. The cupcakes will be very pale in colour.
  6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then transfer onto a wire rack.
  7. To make the buttercream icing, whisk together the butter, icing sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and yellow food colouring to form a smooth icing.
  8. When the cupcakes are cooled, pipe the buttercream icing onto the cupcakes and decorate as desired.


Chef's Tip
For an even zestier cupcake, when the cakes are cooled, cut a little "lid" out of the centre of the cupcakes. Add in some lemon curd, replace with the "lid" and decorate as normal.
