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.
