No one can resist the beauty of a cupcake, but sometimes you're not in the mood for that much sweetness. These cupcakes provide the perfect antidote by adding a tart zing to a plain old cupcake.
A lot of "lemon meringue cupcakes" have you add lemon curd in the middle. However, I believe that curd is time-consuming and doesn't pack enough lemony punch. As a substitute, here we have added actual lemons that are already broiled a bit to caramelize them. It's rare when something is easier and tastes better!
If you have a favorite plain cupcake recipe, you can always just stick to that as your base, but make sure to put in a bit of lemon juice to bring it all together.
