Lemon curd cupcakes 🍋

This is the cupcakes I made the other day and I just thought I should share the recipe and method with you all. I used a Betty Crocker lemon cake mix and frosting to save time and I thought I would give them a go and they turned out good they was really yummy and light, I did however put my own little twist with putting lemon curd in the middle of the sponge to make them gooey and give them some extra lemon flavour. I will link where you can get some of the ingredients at the end but most you can get at any supermarket.


  • Betty Crocker zesty lemon cake mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • 75ml Vegetable Oil 
  • 180ml water 
  • Lemon curd 
  • Betty Crocker zesty lemon icing 
  • Cupcake cases 
  • Cupcake Baking tray

Makes 24.


Preheat- The oven to 180°/ Gas Mark 4.

Fill- The baking tray with cupcake cases.

Mix together the Cake mix, 3 eggs, 75ml Vegetable Oil and 180ml Water, until fully blended and smooth.

Spoon- The mixture evenly into the cupcake cases, making sure not to over fill them.

Place- In pre heated oven, for 20-26 minutes, keeping an eye on them.
Leave- To cool completely on a cooling rack, making sure they are totally cool before going any further.

Spoon- Out the centre of the cupcakes, making sure not to go too leave the bottom and sides of cakes.

Fill- Center of cakes with lemon curd, you will only need a small amount, about half a teaspoon.

Frost- The top of the cakes with the zesty lemon icing, you can do what ever you like here if you can or want to you can pipe the icing or you can just spread using a knife.

Enjoy- You can now dig in and enjoy your scrummy cupcakes, I enjoyed mine with a cup of tea whilst watch the great British bake off. 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, you can find the ingredients in any supermarket but you can get Betty Crocker zesty lemon cake mix and icing from Waitrose, Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and possibly more supermarkets but this is where I know sells them.Thank you for reading this post.
