Citronu Kapkeiki // Lemon Cupcakes


  Ziemassvētku dāvanās saņēmu trīs (trīs!) pavārgrāmatas, tāpēc man nekas cits neatlika kā izmēģināt pāris receptes. Šī recepte, gan ar nelielām izmaiņām, nāk no grāmatas "Bake Me A Cake", ko dāvanā saņēmu no tuvas draudzenes. Tagad ļaujiet man jums ko pateikt, nebaidīšos teikt, ka tagad šis ir mans top 1 kapkeiks, ne tikai tāpēc, ka neiedomājami viegli pagatavojams, bet neiedomājami garšīgs. Šī citronu kapkeika garša ir bagātīga, tas ir gaisīgs un to var uzglabāt līdz četrām dienām. 
  Ja Tev garšo citroni, šis kapkeips ir tieši Tev. Tāpēc dodies us tuvāko veikalu, paņem pāris citronus un ķeries pie darba. Praktiski visi to atzīs par labu esam, arī tie, kas negribīgi bauda ko jaunu un nav saldummīļi. Lieliski derēs reizēs, kad tiecies ar draudzenēm, uzņem ciemiņus vai vienkārši baudi tēju ģimenes lokā.

  For Christmas I received three (three!) cookbooks, so what else there was to do than use them?  This recipe, although with slight changes, comes from book called "Bake Me A Cake", that was gifted by a close friend of mine. Let me tell you something, this may be my favorite cupcake from now on, not just because it is incredibly easy to make, practically foolproof, but its taste is amazing. This lemon cupcake is rich with taste, fluffy and can be stored for up to four days. 
  If you like lemon, this cupcake is for you. Go to the nearest shop and grab a few lemons and get to the work, practically everyone will be amazed, even those, who are reluctant to try something new and overly don't like sweets. It will be great for meetings with girlfriends, when you are accepting guests or simply having tea with your family.


Nepieciešams (12 gabaliem):
200 grami brūnā cukura
200 grami sviesta istabas temperatūrā
1 citrona sarīvēta miza
1 citrona sula
4 olas
200 grami miltu
Glazūrai:
75 grami sviesta istabas temperatūrā
175 grami pūdercukura
1-2 gk piena
citrona vai laima sarīvēta miziņa

1. Uzsilda krāsni līdz 180°C un 12 cepšanas papīra formiņas ievieto maffinu formā;
2. Samaisa sviestu, brūno cukuru un citrona miziņu, līdz sasniedz krēmīgu konsistenci, tad pa vienai pievieno olas, tad miltus un citrona sulu;
3. Ievieto masu formiņās un cep aptuveni 12-15 minūtes līdz kapkeiki paliek zeltaini. Ļauj piecas minūtes atdzist un tad ņem ārā no maffinu formas un ļauj atdzist pilnībā;
4. Gatavojot glazūru, sajauc sviestu ar 2/3 pūdercukura, nedaudz vēlāk pievieno atlikušo pūdercukuru un pienu, līdz iegūst ziežamu konsistenci;
5. Ar nelielu nazīti uzziež glazūru kapkeikiem un grezno ar laima vai citronu miziņu.
