Ingredients

1 1/2 cups cake flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk, low-fat
plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk, low-fat
1/4 cup canola oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 large very fresh egg white
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon lemon oil

Cooking Instructions

For the cupcakes:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.

2. Sift the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add the sugar, buttermilk, oil and vanilla and stir to combine (do not overmix).

3. Fill each baking cup 2/3 full. Bake until a skewer inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Allow the cupcakes to cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the pan.

For the lemon glaze:

1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the confectioner?s sugar and egg white. Beat on low speed until the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. With the mixer running, gradually add the water. Stir in the lemon oil.

2. Using a small spoon, spread the glaze on top of the cooled cupcakes. Store the cupcakes in an airtight container.

Makes 12 standard sized cupcakes or 24 miniature cupcakes.
