Happy Birthday to KFB - Lemon Cuppies

Kolkata Food Bloggers is celebrating its very first birthday and we members are so excited! Cannot belive that it has already been a year and we have come a long way. Most of you know the story how I became a part of this group - through an informal chat with a co - blogger and now it has become an integral part of my life. Apart from all the fun and learning that happens through the group its the friendships that I truly cherish! In a very short span I have made some dear friends and cant imagine my life without them. 
It was Sarani's brainchild that we celebrate KFB's first birthday by bringing in finger food and dessert recipes and have a virtual party ( we had a real one too) But this was an initiative to get many of the bloggers together under one platform. So keeping in tune with the theme I made some Lemon Cuppies - these are the eggless version and requires very minimum effort. I dressed up few of them with butter cream and sprinkles to keep up the party spirit.

Recipe adapted from:


Flour - 1 cup

Baking powder - 1/4 th tsp

Baking soda - 1/4th tsp

Salt - a pinch

Brown sugar - 1 cup

Milk - 1 cup

Olive oil - 1/2 cup

Lemon juice - 1/4th cup

Lemon zest - zest of one lemon - i used the zest of a gondhoraj lime


Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Line and prepare your cupcake tins.

Sieve together the flour , baking powder, baking soda and salt and keep aside.

In a bowl mix together sugar , olive oil, milk ,lime juice and the lemon zest. 

Then gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixing until just combined.

Fill each cupcake mould 3/4th full and bake for 20 mins.

I dressed up a few cuppies with butter cream and sprinkles for my little one to enjoy!

Wishing KFB all the very best for future endeavours. Keep rocking!
