Instructions
  1. Cream butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add eggs and mix again.
  3. Add milk, lime zest and lime extract and mix everything until it’s properly combined with no lumps.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder and baking soda. Dump this dry mixture into the wet mixture and mix until just combined. This will be a thick batter but DON’T over-mix!
  5. Pour this batter into cupcake liners. Place a raspberry in the center of each cupcake and add 1 teaspoon of of cupcake batter on top of the raspberries to cover them. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Allow these raspberry lime cupcakes to cool down and make the icing… Add the cream cheese, butter, lime zest (optional), gel coloring (optional) and lime extract in a deep bowl and mix everything properly until there are no lumps.
  7. Then, start adding powdered sugar while continuing to mix. Start with 1 cup of sugar and work your way up.
  8. Frost your cupcakes with this icing and top them off with fresh raspberries and slices of lime.
  9. And you are done!
Recipe Notes

– This recipe will yield about 12 cupcakes.
– Don’t even bother eating these cupcakes warm or at room temperature. You need to frost them and chill them overnight to allow the zesty and fruity flavors to deepen over a span of few hours.
– You can adjust the amount of sugar in the frosting, based on your preference. If you want a thicker consistency, add more powdered sugar and if you prefer a thinner consistency, add less powdered sugar.
– If you are planning on piping on your cupcakes like I did, I suggest omitting the lime zest since it will clog your tips.
