My favorite cupcakes are citrus flavored. Citrus just brightens up a cupcake in a way that chocolate or vanilla just can’t. It’s a nice, cool, sweet treat any time of year. I found a recipe for key lime cupcakes via the Food Network (where I find many of my recipes…while watching Food Network Challenges or Cupcake Wars). You can find it here: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/key-lime-cupcakes-with-key-lime-curd-recipe.html
After I had made the key lime version a few times, I decide to try and make a raspberry lime rickey style cupcake and thus, my raspberry key lime cupcake was born. You can do cherry lime (as pictured above) as well. Either way – delicious.
