Okay, so a bowl of fruit might be much healthier than a batch of cupcakes, but it’s Tuesday and a little sugar pick me up may be just what the doctor ordered. Plus, the recipe I am going to share with you all (courtesy of Ree Drummond from the Food Network) derives most of its flavor from natural fruit sources, lemons and blueberries to be exact.
What I love most about this recipe is that it provides directions on how to make both the batter and the frosting completely from scratch. Recipes made 100% from scratch increase your odds of keeping MSG and synthetic ingredients out of the foods you eat.
So, skip the store bought can of greasy frosting filled with hydrogenated oils and make your own instead. Here are just a few of the many health benefits of using lemon as a main flavor ingredient in cupcakes: vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, niacin thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, copper, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, and protein (organicfacts.net). A cupcake that is both yummy and healthy…what more could one ask for?
