Key Lime Cream Cupcakes with Vanilla Lime Buttercream

Stop whatever you're doing and make these cupcakes.


They are that amazing.

I adapted a recipe from Bakerella for the cupcakes and made up my own frosting to top them off.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
2/3 cup coconut oil, melted
2/3 cup bottled lime juice
3/4 cup Greek yogurt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.

Add the eggs, oil, lime juice, and yogurt. Mix until well blended.

Pour into cupcake tins.

After putting the tins in the oven, turn the oven down to 325 degrees, and bake for 25 minutes.

Cool on wire racks.
