Sometimes mistakes turn into great things. This is one of those times. I was attempting something completely different, I was trying to make fluffier, lighter financiers, but they turned out too light when I first tested them. I needed a solution to my problem. And then I remembered cupcakes. As it happens, I had plenty of paper molds at home, and I thought to myself the planets are aligning. Suddenly my financier frustration became cupcake hope.
This is the lightest, moistest, most delicious lemon cupcake you will ever try. It’s incredible. And it’s all thanks to the egg whites: beat egg whites to be more precise. It’s a game changer. And the brown butter. Always the butter. You know I live in France, right? We can’t go without butter long. 😊
