The frosting for these cupcakes is tinted a pretty pale shade of pink with pureed raspberries (not food coloring), which also adds flavor. Martha made this recipe on "Martha Bakes" episode 808.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, beat butter, sugar, and lemon zest on medium speed until well combined, about 3 minutes. Beat in lemon juice, vanilla, and egg. Add flour mixture in 3 batches, alternating with 2 additions of yogurt, beating until just combined (do not overmix).

  • Divide batter evenly among paper-lined standard muffin tins, filling each cup three-quarters full. Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until golden and a tester inserted in centers comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely in tins on wire racks before removing. Cupcakes can be stored at room temperature up to 2 days before spreading about 2 tablespoons frosting on each.

Taste was great but they stuck to the paper liners, so only got the top half to eat. :( I followed everything exactly. I would make these again if they didn’t stick to the liners.

These cupcakes go flat (maybe too much yogurt?) & it's NOT because my baking powder and/or baking soda has expired. I added more grated lemon peel, but didn't help the taste one bit! Don't waste your time or ingredients on this bummer recipe!!

These were delicious! They baked perfectly and were nice and light and lemony. I will be making these again!

The recipe is more like a cheesecake rather than a cupcake. The centers of all of them fell while cooling in their pan. They were cooked until the toothpick came out clean.
