Upcoming wedding of my best friend inspired me to do something really special. So the first thing I thought of was Royal Wedding Cake flavors. A combination of lemon and elderflower sounded genius. And then I decided that will be it! And that’s how Lemon cupcakes with elderflower butter cream has been made up.
100 g of eggs
120 g of butter
140 g of buttermilk
7 g of baking powder
170 g of flour
120 g of sugar
grated lemon skin
First preheat the oven to 180 °C.
Next mix sugar and butter until you get a fluffy cream. Keep adding eggs, one by one, until all ingredients are well combined.
Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.
Next start adding flour mix spoon by spoon. When your dough is smooth, add buttermilk and mix all until it’s combined.
Prepare baking form for muffins and cover the holes with cupcakes cases. When that’s ready, put the dough to each muffin case so it’s filed in 3 quarters.
Put the baking form to the oven and bake muffins for about 20 minutes or until the toothpick is dry.
After that time remove the cupcakes from the oven and leave to complete cooldown.
In a meantime prepare a butter cream.
Elderflower butter cream
200 g of butter
250 g of mascarpone
2 teaspoons of elderflower syrup
40 g of powdered sugar
At the beginning whip butter with powdered sugar until you get a fluffy cream. Next keep adding mascarpone cheese spoon by spoon. And at the end (while mixing all the time) add elderflower syrup.
Mix it all for a while, until you get all ingredients combined.
Next put the butter cream to a pastry bug with choosen ending and decorate your muffins.
You can decorate your muffins on the top with whatever you’d like or you can do it as I did and choose the Duplo candy bar.
