Arnold Palmer Cupcakes Recipe

Ingredients :
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
2 teaspoons lemon juice
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups sour cream
ICED TEA FROSTING:
9 tablespoons butter, softened
6-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup 2% milk
3/4 cup iced tea mix with lemon and sugar

How To Make Arnold Palmer Cupcakes :
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lemon zest and lemon juice. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition (batter will be thick).
Fill 30 lined muffin cups with 1/4 cup batter. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
For frosting, combine butter and confectioners' sugar in a small bowl until light and fluffy. In another small bowl, stir together milk and iced tea mix until dissolved. Add to butter mixture; beat until smooth. Frost cupcakes.

Test Kitchen tips :
Not a fan of iced tea? Use powdered lemonade mix instead of the tea mix in the frosting.
Want a sheet cake? Pour batter into a 13x9-in. baking pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
Need a layer cake? Pour batter into two 8- or 9-in. baking pans. They'll take about 20 minutes or so to bake.
