For the love all things surprisingly delicious! These vanilla raspberry cupcakes with raspberry frosting have a little surprise lemon center on the inside! These sweet treats are so much fun to make but even more fun to eat! I love the flavor combination of sweet and fruity raspberries with zesty and tangy lemon. It’s a flavor combination made in heaven!
I start this recipe with a simple vanilla cake batter for the cupcakes. If you want to add extra raspberry flavor to the cake, try adding some crushed freeze-dried raspberries to the mix. Once the cupcakes are baked, I take a simple round cake tip and cut out the center of each cupcake. You can also do this with a small spoon, scooping out just enough to get some lemon curd inside. Then I frost the cupcakes with an irresistible raspberry buttercream frosting. This frosting is everything! Sweet, fruity and perfect for this recipe!
*Frosting tip: whenever you’re adding fresh berries to a buttercream, add them at the very end! Make sure the frosting is light and fluffy first. If you add the berries too soon, the frosting will separate.*
