Limes and cherries seem like a crazy combination, but once you try them together (like in Sonic’s cherry limeade, which was the inspiration for these sweet treats) you will understand how well they mesh. The lime is in the cupcake batter, in the form of both zest and juice, alongside cupcake staples like flour, buttermilk and sugar. The cherries are in the frosting – the recipe calls for butter, pitted fresh cherries and sugar. Bake, frost and fall in love with this formerly “crazy” combination.
