Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 350°. Coat a popover pan (see Note) with nonstick cooking spray. Line each indentation with a paper liner, or line 6 indentations of a jumbo muffin tin with paper liners.

  • In large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

  • In small bowl, whisk milk, lemon zest, juice, egg, egg yolk and oil. Make a well in the flour mixture; add milk mixture. Stir until all flour mixture is moistened. Stir in poppyseeds.

  • Transfer batter to prepared pan, a heaping 1/3 cup per indentation. Bake cakes at 350° for 25 minutes.

  • Remove cakes immediately from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.

  • In small saucepan (not nonstick), mix sugar, egg white, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons water, corn syrup, cream of tartar and salt. Heat over medium-low to medium heat, beating continuously with an electric mixer until medium-stiff white peaks are formed and an instant-read thermometer registers 150°, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Beat an additional 1 minute.

  • Spread cooled cupcakes generously with icing, about 3 tablespoons per cupcake (there will be icing left over). Slip cakes into clean cupcake liners, if desired, and tie with ribbon or string.
