Speaking of cupcakes... Since I've been watching nothing but 2 Broke Girl reruns, all I've been craving these days is a cupcake! So tonight, I decided to make cupcakes! Yes! This is my first time making cupcakes. I've always made banana bread muffins, or some sort of muffin, but never cake. I used the Yellow Citrus Cake mix in my very ancient cook book from the 1970's. The recipe basically has lemon zest (which I tripled, because I am in love with lemon!), and lemon juice (fresh, not fake).
I am a freak when it comes to lemons. I always have at least 2-10 lemons in my crisper at all times. If I'm out, that goes on my list of things to buy. If you must know, I make a lemon linguine sometimes for dinner (lemon juice of 1 lemon, fried garlic, 1 serving of linguine, pinch of crushed chili, and parsley). It is the most delicious linguine meal I've ever eaten, and it's my comfort food. :)
Here's a few photos of my lovely cupcakes:

Ok, so the cupcakes are cooled and I've just eaten one, and Oh My Goodness they're so spongy and delicious! I would have made frosting, but I didn't have any confectioner's sugar, nor any butter. But you know what? They are delicious as is, and 10 times less fattening.
If anyone would like this recipe, I will gladly post it. I'm sure you can find it in your own cookbooks though, it's just a standard yellow citrus cake mix. :)
Enjoy, and happy Friday!
