Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

On a Sunday, I do like to have a lazy day and recharge ready for the new week but today, I decide to be slightly productive. Instead of spending my day slumped in front of the TV, I got a little creative in the kitchen and make some lemon drizzle cupcakes! Even though I’m partial to a slab of chocolate cake, I do love a good ol’ slice of lemon - sweet but also light and refreshing! These little treats were incredibly easy to make and only took me 10 minutes so why don’t you treat yourself?

I found this recipe on the Asda Good Living website but I did change a couple of things along the way so I will let you know exactly what I did below:

What you need:
- 125g self-raising flour
- 1 level tsp baking powder
- 125g butter, softened
- 125g caster sugar
- 2 large free-range eggs
- 3 tbsp of lemon juice
- A sprinkle of icing sugar 

The method:
1.   Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4 and line a bun tray with 8 muffin cases.

2.  Pop the flour and baking powder together in a large bowl. Then add the butter, sugar and eggs. Make sure the butter is soft otherwise it is difficult to mix until smooth.

3.  Add the lemon juice and beat with a wooden spoon until there are no lumps. Scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula to make sure you haven’t missed any ingredients.

4.  Put the mixture in the paper cases, making sure they're all about the same size. Bake for 20 minutes until the tops spring back when pressed.

5.  Then dust over a light sprinkling of icing powder

HEY PRESTO, its as easy as that! If you want to make them even tastier (and a little bit naughty), you can add a light lemony icing on top once cooled. But, there you go - short but sweet. If you make these little cupcakes, let me know, as I would love to see how they turned out for you!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and have an even better week ahead. Speak to you very soon.
