But, as usual though I couldn't actually follow a recipe! (Gasp, what a crazy idea!) So, I took a vanilla cupcake recipe and morphed it into a lemon cake recipe resulting in a lovely cake so light and fluffy it was like heaven.
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 and 1/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons natural lemon extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine milk and vinegar in a measuring cup and set aside a few minutes to curdle.
Mix together the the sugar and shortening.
Add the milk mixture and extract.
Add in the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and mix until well combined.
Pour batter into a lightly greased cake tin and bake for 20-25 minutes.
