    I work at Yummly and made these for a colleague's birthday, they were a delight. I halved the recipe (using 2 eggs and halving everything else) to make a dozen cupcake. I used Meyer lemons and subbed regular milk for the small amount of heavy cream in the frosting. Very tasty - a sweet treat but not cloying. Will make again.

    They turned out fantastic! I thought both the lemon zest and the lemon juice would be too overpowering, but it was perfect! #cookingfor2

    Loved the recipe! I skipped on the heavy creme because I forgot about it but it worked out even without it. Also I think vanilla extract is not necessary but it's a nice addition. In any case love the recipe and check out the muffins I made!
