the wait is over

for all of you who have been waiting patiently for the recipe we’ve been promising – here it is, we baked another batch this afternoon and made a few modifications – this one actually came out even better so this is the one we’re going with

lemon surprise white chocolate cupcakes

white chocolate cake

  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 oz. white chocolate, chopped & melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup + 1 tbsp. milk
  • 2 oz. white chocolate, finely chopped
  1. preheat oven to 325°
  2. whisk together flour, baking powder and salt
  3. cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy
  4. melt white chocolate
  5. add chocolate and vanilla to the butter/sugar mixture
  6. add ⅓ of the dry ingredients, ½ the milk, ⅓ of the dry ingredients, ½ the milk and the remaining ⅓ of the dry ingredients – mix just until combined
  7. fold in chopped white chocolate
  8. fill cupcake liners ¾ full and bake 20-25 minutes (ours took 25) until toothpick comes out clean

lemon white chocolate frosting

  • 6 oz. white chocolate, chopped
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1-2 cups powdered sugar
  • fresh squeezed lemon juice to taste
  1. stir white chocolate and whipping cream over low heat until melted and smooth
  2. cool
  3. add butter, 1 cup powdered sugar and lemon juice, beat on high until light and fluffy
  4. continue adding lemon juice and powdered sugar until you get the consistency and flavor you desire – ours was super tart

we just used jell-o lemon flavored instant pudding as the filling because it has a nice lemon flavor without being overpowering – plus it was a spur of the moment decision – it would also be good with a lemon curd filling (or whatever floats your boat)

for the topping we just used a simple lemon sugar that i mixed up using the zest from the lemons that we juiced for the frosting

hopefully everyone enjoys – we welcome any comments, suggestions, critiques and especially praise 🙂
