Beat in the eggs one at a time, beating each egg until incorporated before adding the next. Mix in the vanilla extract and lemon zest.3

Gently beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture, one third at a time, alternating with half the milk and half the lemon juice after each of the first 2 additions of flour. Beat until just combined; do not over mix.4

Fill the prepared cupcake liners with batter 3/4 full, and bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 – 20 minutes. Let the cupcakes cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before removing them to finish cooling on a rack.Icing Directions5
