The zest of both a lemon and lime make these yummy Citrus Zest Cupcakes pop! With a taste akin to a sunny summer day, these cupcakes are sure to disappear fast.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package lemon cake mix
  • 1 (4-serving-size) package instant lemon pudding and pie filling
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest, divided
  • 1 (16-ounce) container vanilla or cream cheese frosting
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tins with paper baking cups.
     
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed, combine cake mix, pudding, eggs, lime juice, oil, water, and 1 teaspoon each lime and lemon zest. Spoon batter into muffin cups filling each about 2/3 full.
     
  3. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.
