Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Line 14 muffin cups with paper liners.
  3. Sift almond flour, gluten-free all-purpose baking flour, and baking powder together in a bowl.
  4. Cream 1 cup butter with sucanat in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes; mix in ricotta cheese.
  5. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating each egg in thoroughly before adding the next one. Gradually beat in almond flour mixture, about 1/4 cup at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl often. Mix 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/2 teaspoon lemon oil into the batter until evenly blended.
  6. Fill the prepared muffin cups about 2/3 full.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until cupcakes have risen and are very lightly golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Do not open oven doors until 25 minutes of baking time have elapsed.
  8. Allow cupcakes to cool thoroughly.
  9. Cut plugs out of the centers of the cupcakes and fill each hole with about 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon curd.
  10. Beat cream cheese and 1 cup butter in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer until smooth and creamy. Mix in confectioners' sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon oil to make a smooth, spreadable frosting. Frost the filled cupcakes.

I was so excited when I found this recipe, I ran right out and bought the ingredients to make it. I wish I could say I was thrilled with the result, but I wasn't. The cupcakes were extremely dense and heavy. And they were not sweet like regular cupcakes. I had never used sucanat before and I recommend anyone who likes sweet cupcakes to use a standard sugar. The curd and frosting were fine, but overall no one in my family liked them very much.

I wasn't really sure about these because of the mixed reviews. I made them once using an all purpose GF baking mix and they were ok. But I could tell they had potential. So I made them again with the baking mix it specifies in the recipe (see notes)- with coconut flour, arrowroot, etc and that made all the difference!! They were absolutely amazing! I am guessing the negative reviews used a different flour blend and then I could see the results being unpredictable. Seriously- make these cupcakes- they are delicious- but use the flour blend they recommend.
