Lemon & Courgette Cupcakes

I am posting again.
Yes, you guessed it!
They are soooo yummy!
Here is my recipe:


150g softened butter
150g caster sugar
175g self raising flour
Zest of 1 lemon grated
Juice of 1 lemon
150g courgette grated
Cream Cheese Icing
100g full fat creamed cheese
25g unsalted butter
160g icing sugar


Pre-heat the oven to 190°C / gas mark 5 / 375F
1: Cream the butter until smooth
2: Add the sugar and mix until creamed together
3: Add the lemon zest and juice then mix
4: Add the eggs one at a time with a spoon of flour to prevent the mixture separating
5: Add the courgette and sift in the flour and mix until evenly blended
6: Spoon into cupcakes cases and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until golden and a skewer comes out clean when put into the centre of the cake
7: To make the icing, using an electric whisk cream together the cream cheese and butter
8: Gradually add the icing sugar stirring it in with a spoon before finishing it off with the electric whisk
9: Cover the bowl and leave in the fridge for an hour before piping on once the cupcakes have completely cooled
