Small batch lemon cupcakes

Jump to Recipe

This recipe makes 6 muffins, perfect if you have a small household. I love the simplicity of this recipe and how it yields the most perfect fluffy texture.

I opted to use honey to sweeten the muffins because it compliments the lemon so well.

I used ground almonds as well as self raising flour to give this a fluffy texture, the ground almonds can be subbed for extra flour if you sent it to be nut free.
