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 the fiancé’s coworkers. They disappeared in no time, and I can understand why.
Another winner Martha. You don’t disappoint.
Thanks to Marthe from 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!

Great job. I thought these were yummy too!
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.
I love the zested lime picture! Your cupcake looks delicious!
Thanks for baking along with us this month!
Great photos! I thought these cupcakes were pretty good.
