1 tablespoon grated lime peel
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tbsp semi skimmed milk
Lemon Curd to fill (I used purchased )
Preheat oven to 180 º. Beat the butter with the sugar and lime zest until creamy . Add eggs , one by one. Add the flour , sifted with baking powder and finally the milk.
We filled the papers for cupcakes and bake about 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
We took them out of the pan and let cool on a rack.
A cold time, fill it with Lemon Curd .
For the buttercream, we beat 250g icing sugar with 125g unsalted butter , 1/2 teaspoon of extract lemon lime ( or lemon ) , 1/ 2 teaspoon lemon zest ( finely grated ) 1/2 grated lime . Beat about 5 minutes or until smooth and homogeneous. We can dye yellow or lime green food coloring , if desired.
