For the cupcakes
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup canola oil
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 3.9-ounce box instant lemon pudding mix
- 1 tablespoon poppy seeds, plus more for garnish
- 1 12-ounce jar store-bought lemon curd
For the frosting
- 2 8-ounce bricks cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Serves: 18 cupcakes
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Line 18 muffin tins with cupcake liners.
Add the sugar, eggs and oil to a mixing bowl and beat with hand mixer until smooth. Turn to the lowest speed and add the flour one cup at a time. Once well incorporated, slowly pour in the milk. Once all the milk is incorporated, add in the pudding mix and poppy seeds, and mix until well-combined.
Using a batter scoop, fill each muffin tin 3/4 of the way to the top with batter. Place the muffin tins into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cupcakes begin to brown around the edges. Remove from oven and let cool.
While they’re cooling, make the cream cheese frosting: In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together to cream cheese and butter. Once smooth and fluffy, add the confectioner’s sugar one cup at a time. Add the salt and the almond extract, and mix to combine.
Once the cupcakes are cool, it’s time to fill them! Place the lemon curd into a baggy or pastry bag and cut off the tip. Using a paring knife, cut a cone shape out of the top of the cupcakes to make a big hole in the center. Fill each cupcake with lemon curd up to the top. Using a batter scoop or kitchen spoon, dollop a big helping of the cream cheese frosting on top. Spread the frosting just slightly using an offset spatula or butter knife then sprinkle the tops with poppy seeds.
