How to make Lime White Chocolate Chips Cupcakes + Freebie

This is an easy recipe that I found in a cool book but I had to change a few things so it would be as I wanted. Hope you find it as yummy as I did.

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 180ºC/350ºF and line 12-hole muffin pan with cupcakes liners.
  • In a small bowl mix flour, cornstarch and bicarbonate soda.
  • In a stand mixer, cream the butter on medium speed until it’s very soft and creamy then add little by little the sugar and ring mix for about 5 minutes or until is fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time.
  • Stir in flour mixture, juice and milk little by little until well combine. Turn off the mixer and manually mix the white chocolate chips.

Making the Frosting

  • Beat butter in a small bowl with a stand mixer until creamy and as white as possible, then beat in the icing sugar and milk in tow batches.
  • Fill an icing bag with the frosting and set in the fridge for about 5 minutes. Don’t leave it for more than 10 minutes or the frosting won’t work well.
  • When Cupcakes are cool, decorate with your icing bag and your favorite tip.
  • I added a piece of lime peal to the top!
  • Tadaaaaa…Serve and enjoy!
