  • Summary

    A trio of citrus zests brightens simple cupcakes. The ones pictured are finished with lime-flavored glaze and finely grated lime zest, but lemons or oranges could replace the lime. Or, for a particularly pretty display, divide the glaze into thirds and flavor each portion with a different citrus, with garnishes to match.

    Ingredients

    • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
    • 1 pound (4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 3 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest (from 3 lemons)
    • 3 tablespoons finely grated orange zest (from 2 oranges)
    • 3 tablespoons finely grated lime zest, plus more for garnish (from 3 limes)
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 9 large eggs, room temperature
    • Citrus Glaze for Triple-Citrus Cupcakes
