    Lemon raspberry cupcakes topped with fresh raspberries. The perfect dessert for Spring!

    Ingredients

    • 15 ounces 15 oz box lemon cake mix
    • 3.4 ounces 3.4 oz box lemon pudding (dry)
    • 3 eggs
    • 3/4 canola oil
    • 3/4 cup hot water
    • 3/4 cup sour cream
    • Zest from 1 lemon

    Frosting:

    • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
    • 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 cup fresh raspberries

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 325°.
    • In a large bowl combine the cake mix and dry pudding mix. Next mix in the eggs, canola oil and water. Finally stir in the sour cream and lemon zest.
    • Pour cake mix into the cupcake liners (about 3/4 the way full). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until they spring back when touched. Do not over cook. You can also test with a tooth pick to make sure the centers are cooked all the way through.
    • Remove from oven and allow cupcakes to cool on a cooling rack.
    • In a large bowl beat the butter and vanilla with a mixer, until nice and fluffy. Then slowly add in the powdered sugar, saving the last 1/2 cup. Add in raspberries and mix until combined. Slowly add the last 1/2 cup powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency.
    • Frost cupcakes :)
