Lemon cupcakes

I had egg yolks and ganache left over from making macarons. So I decided to make cupcakes! :D

Lemon cupcakes with white chocolate ganache
Makes 12 cupcakes and 1 mini loaf

zest of 1 large lemon
1 1/4 cup plain flour
1/3 cup self raising flour
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg yolks
1 whole egg
2/3 cup milk
62.5g butter, melted

white chocolate ganache (see macarons)

Sift flours, sugar and baking powder in a bowl.
Create a well and add lemon zest, milk, 2 egg yolks, melted butter and vanilla extract. Combine.
Add whole egg and gently fold through, being careful not to over mix.
Scoop into lined muffin pans and bake in a preheated oven at 170C for about 12mins or until cooked.
Cool completely before applying ganache and decorations.
