Baking Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes: Step by Step

Step 1: Dry Ingredients

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Mix all the dry ingredients together: the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and granulated sugar should be mixed by hand in the medium-sized mixing bowl.

Step 2: Wet Ingredients

In the large mixing bowl use the hand mixer to combined the butter, Greek yogurt, and eggs. Mix only until combined. Over mixing will affect the final product.

Step 3: Combined

Use the hand mixer combine the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients. Add a cup at a time until everything has been mixed together.

Step 4: Add Fruit

To finish the batter add 4 teaspoons of lemon juice and the zest of 1 lemon mix until fully stirred together. Then add the 2 cups of fresh raspberries. Mix the raspberries in with a spoon, not the hand mixer.

Step 5: Bake

Spoon batter into greased cupcake tins. I don’t use cupcake liners because I find them wasteful. I can take 5 to 10 extra minutes to wash the tins out.

Place cupcake tins in pre-heated oven for 10 to 15 minutes. These cupcakes will be thicker when fully baked and can be iced for cupcakes or eaten plain like a muffin.
