Now onto the recipe!

If you have been following me for a while then you know that my love for eggless cupcakes runs deep. I love experimenting with different combinations to create egg-free cupcakes. This time I have used a few simple ingredients such as curd, milk, and lime flavor to create these moist eggless Key Lime cupcakes.

To make these cupcakes, combine dry and wet ingredients together until it forms a smooth batter. Line the cupcake tray with liners. Fill the cupcake liners 2/3 to 3/4 of the way full. 

Bake in a preheated oven (@325 degrees F) for 18-20 minutes.

Why Key lime?

Key limes are aromatic and have a slightly herbal-floral aroma. They are more acidic in nature and add a refreshing citrus flavor to these cupcakes. Don’t be disheartened if you can’t find Key lime in your grocery store.

Other tested and tried citrus options are oranges, grapefruit, and regular lime.

Key Lime frosting!

Additionally, the frosting on top can be created with a variety of different ingredients, such as whipped cream, buttercream, or cream cheese. Either way, it turns out to be absolutely delicious.

I personally prefer the light whipped cream method, which allows for a light but a delectable layer of frosting.
