Cherry Limeade Cupcakes

These cupcakes have the best blend of flavors - made with bright tart lime meets sweet fruity cherries. They're fluffy and topped with a dreamy frosting.



Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp lime zest
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup + 3 Tbsp buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

Simple Syrup

  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp granulted sugar

Frosting and topping

  • 3/4 cup butter (I used 1/2 cup unsalted and 1/4 cup salted)
  • 2 1/2 - 2 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • Few drops red food coloring (optional)
  • 3 Tbsp maraschino cherry juice
  • 12 maraschino cherries , lime slices and sugar crystal sprinkles


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift all-purpose flour and cake flour into a mixing bowl. Add baking powder, baking soda and salt and whisk 20 seconds, set aside.
  2. In a food processor, pulse together 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp granulated sugar with lime zest until finely ground, about 1 minute. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together butter with lime sugar mixture until pale and fluffy (if you don't have the paddle attachment that constantly scrapes bowl, then occasionally throughout entire mixing process, stop mixer and scrape down sides and bottom of bowl). Mix in egg, then mix in egg whites one at a time, adding in vanilla with second egg white.
