Moist Yogurt Lemon Cupcakes

These yogurt lemon cupcakes are delicious, they are so moist and lemony; if you don't have lemon extract, just add more freshly grated lemon zest and juice; you can eat them plain or you can frost them with any kind of creamy frosting, which adds some creaminess and sweetness. Absolutely a great cupcake recipe that everybody loves.

These cupcakes were so buttery and moist, really loved the yogurt and lemon zest, juice together, which made the cupcakes super moist and fluffy, every bite could feel the zing from the lemon juice and zest. And I made these cupcakes for Easter. They will be welcomed, no doubt :)
