Key Lime Cupcakes

Moist and fluffy Key Lime Cupcakes! Just one bite will transport you to the Florida Keys…

I’m a sucker for key lime anything… but cupcakes definitely hold a special place in my heart. They’re really the perfect party/picnic/BBQ dessert. Oh! And if you really wanna kick things up a level, try adding a teaspoon of tequila and a pinch of sea salt to the frosting. Hello, key lime margarita cupcakes!

Key Lime Cupcakes

Who says that key lime has to be chained to the sad, dreary confines of a PIE? Who wants to always be a pie? I certainly do not, and I for one am incredibly happy to see that key lime cupcakes totally exist. I don’t always like my cupcakes oozing with sweetness, and these tangy bites of deliciousness ensure that I don’t get pummeled with sugar. While there is still plenty of sugar in them, these key lime cupcakes have a wonderful tanginess about them that hails back to the original desert (though the pie really does not hold a candle to these babies). Check them out before I eat them all, because…well, because I will.

Eric Lanlard’s key lime cupcakes recipe


A little key lime goes a long way in these beautifully decorated key lime cupcakes, courtesy of Eric Lanlard. The batter contains grated lime zest and lime juice, among other things. Once these treats are baked, they are then topped with lime syrup (made from icing sugar and limes), white chocolate frosting (white chocolate, whipping cream, butter, icing sugar and more lime zest and juice) and then crystalized lime peel. All in all, these sweet treats are a lime lovers delight!
