Divine Key Lime
Well hello there!
Today is an especially lovely summer day, and I have an especially lovely recipe for you! It is so easy, but SOOO good! I found the recipe online, but decided to make a few changes. Here are the ingredients i used.
If you don't have time to make cupcakes from scratch, much less icing from scratch, this recipe is for you! These cupcakes I made for my family flew off the plate. They were so delicious! Ok ok, come on with the recipe already right? Here it is:
1 package of Betty Crocker Vanilla cake mix
- Follow cake directions only Just make the cupcakes out of this
1 container of Vanilla Betty Crocker Vanilla frosting
1 Tablespoon of fresh Lime juice
1/2 Teaspoon of grated regular lime peel (basically Lime zest)
1. Bake cupcakes for about 12 min @ 350 degrees or until they are firm and come out clean with a toothpick
2. In a large bowl, combine frosting ingredients. Gently stir in 1 tablespoon of the lime juice and the lime peel. Spoon frosting into 1-quart resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut 1/2-inch opening from bottom corner of bag. Squeeze 1 rounded teaspoonful frosting from bag onto topping. And if you want, to top it off with a little lime wedge! It adds just the perfect touch!
P.S. Try not to overcook the cupcakes, the light fluffiness of the perfect cupcake is what makes it so perfect!
It's so easy and doesn't even take too long! My favorite part is icing them! it's so fun! Makes you feel like a real baker!
I hope you try this and enjoy it as much as my family and I did! You should have seen the frowns when they were all gone. Key Lime Cupcakes are truly the perfect delicious summer treat!
