I can’t believe another month has already flown by! It’s time for another round of the Monthly Ingredient Challenge. For those of you who are new around here we have gotten together with a group of talented recipe bloggers to challenge ourselves to try new recipes with a different key ingredient each month. The ingredient is chosen by one of the participants and this month it was Meaghan from Cook. Craft. Love.‘s turn…she chose Lemon!

In case you have missed any of the previous monthly challenges so far we have done:

January- Cilantro – Chimichurri Sauce

February- Apples – Caramel Apple Cupcakes

March- Peanut Butter – Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

April- Bacon – BLT Bacon Cups

This month we’re sharing our recipe for Honey Lemon Cupcakes. We actually  made these a few month’s ago for our Big Hero 6 Party (if you have kids you have probably seen it a thousand times but if not Honey Lemon is one of the characters in the movie) but we didn’t get a chance to share them then and they were so good we thought this would be the perfect time to give you the recipe.

They are pretty simple. We used a boxed white cake mix and then cut a small circle out of the middle and filled it lemon pudding. We cut the top off of the center piece and placed it over the pudding as a top, then frosted the cupcake with a vanilla buttercream. To finish it we drizzled honey over it and topped it with a lemon drop candy.

The lemon pudding gave it a great flavor and it kept the cupcakes moist for days. The kids and adults loved them, but if you want to make them a little bit fancier, you can substitute lemon curd for lemon pudding.
