I've changed the name of this blog to What's Cooking (in Yvonne's Kitchen) because I will be getting a kitchen of my own very soon, it maybe small but will be able to produce more goodies to share with everyone!

Lemon and Dragon Fruit Cupcakes

For dragon fruit lovers who happened to love zesty, non-heavy cupcakes, this cupcake will be a treat!

The batter looked like strawberry sorbet before it's baked.

This is how they looked after being baked.

This recipe makes 8 cupcakes

120 g butter, room temperature

80 g brown sugar

120 g eggs (about 2 medium-sized eggs), lightly beaten

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

140 g self-raising flour, sifted

1 tbsp lemon zest

2 tbsp lemon juice

120 g dragon fruit, coarsely grated with juice

1. Preheat the oven @ 180 degree Celsius

2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

3. Beat in eggs one bit at a time and then add in the vanilla extract and mix until smooth.

4. Add flour and beat until all ingredients combined

5. Mix in lemon zest and juice

6. Pour the batter equally into 8 cupcake liners (about ¾ full)

7. Spoon the dragon fruit with juice onto the cupcake batter and use a toothpick to swirl each cupcake.

8. Bake for 20 ~ 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Serve with whipped cream or eat on its own. Yummy!
