Directions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Coat muffin pan with cooking spray, then put paper liners inside the tin.

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

Add sugar, butter and egg in a large bowl, whisking until smooth and well blended.

Stir in yogurt, lemon zest and juice and lemon extract until smooth and well blended.

Put flour mixture into the liquid mixture, stirring just until incorporated and smooth, do not over mix.

Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups.

Bake for about 25 minutes or until tops of cupcakes spring back when lightly touched.

Transfer onto a wire rack, and allow to cool in pan on the wire rack for about 15 minutes.

Remove from pan and cool completely on the wire rack.

Decorate these cupcakes with your own imagination, I used coconut flakes, chocolate eggs and orange, green gums.

Very easy to make and they look very cute.
