Fall in Love With Lemon-Curd-Laced Cupcakes

Ingredients

3-1/2 cups (17-1/2 ounces) all-purpose flour, sifted
2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest, plus 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 1-2 lemons)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
3-1/2 sticks (14 ounces) unsalted butter
3 cups (21 ounces) granulated sugar
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
7 large eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Powdered sugar, for dusting
About 2 cups lemon curd

 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325?F and line two cupcake pans with cupcake liners.
  2. Whisk together the flour, lemon zest, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. In a stand mixer, beat together the butter and sugar, until fluffy
    and lightened in color. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber
    spatula. Add the cream cheese and beat until completely incorporated.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until no streaks of yolk
    remain. Add the lemon juice and vanilla, and mix until incorporated.
  5. Add the dry ingredients in three additions, scraping down the sides
    of the bowl with a rubber spatula between additions. Mix together until
    just combined.
  6. Divide the batter among the cupcake molds, filling each mold about 3/4 full.
  7. Bake for 24-28 minutes, or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted into one of the cupcakes comes out clean.
  8. Allow to rest for 5 minutes, then move to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before filling with lemon curd.
  9. Insert the base of a large pastry tip into the center of a cupcake
    about 1/4-inch deep, and twist until the cake center twists alongside
    the tip; pull directly up to remove the center. Repeat with all of the
    cupcakes.
  10. Sift powdered sugar over the tops of the cupcakes using a fine mesh strainer.
  11. Pipe the lemon curd into the cupcakes until it’s flush with the tops of the cupcakes.
