Lemon Cupcakes

More cupcakes for Cub Scouts.  The frosting on these is DIVINE!


Lemon Cupcakes

1 package lemon cake mix
1 small package lemon instant pudding
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup oil
4 eggs

Mix dry ingredients.  Add wet ingredients. Mix with electric mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.  Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.  Don't overbake!

Lemon Buttercream Frosting

1 cup butter
6 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. grated lemon zest

Beat together with a mixer until fluffy.  Note: this makes a TON of frosting.  Depending on how much frosting you put on your cupcakes, you could probably half this recipe.
