MSC – Triple Citrus Cupcakes

10-20-08 407 copy

Upon reading the title and the recipe I wondered if the lemon would overpower the lime and orange flavors, but they didn’t.

They lived in harmony. Moist and tender crumb, beautiful flecks of zest peeking through the tops, an inviting aroma, lightly sweet and flavorful, these were a stunner. Now that’s what I call a happily ever after.

The texture was more muffin like to me so I only glazed one for show and left the rest plain to give away as a breakfast treat. I halved the recipe and used the zests of one lemon, one lime and one clementine. These were VERY well liked by theΒ fiancΓ©’sΒ coworkers. They disappeared in no time, and I can understand why.

Another winner Martha. You don’t disappoint.

Thanks to Marthe fromΒ Culinairy Delights for choosing this recipe. You’ll have to get Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes book for the recipe.

Up next month: Cookies and Cream Cupcakes. These are great!

  1. I made these on Twitter with Marthe and Margaret and I cannot find the photos to save my life, so am figuring the teen boys had at it with the delete button. No photos, no post. Not sure I want to remake them as I was hoping for light and airy and got dense and a bit dry. Maybe I should make them again to see if I do better this time! Yours look absolutely lovely and delicious.
