Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (at room temperature, ½ stick)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (at room temperature)
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream (very cold)
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup lemon curd (cold, see note)
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (finely)

Directions

  1. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In large bowl, with electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter and sugar until mixture is fluffy and lightens from yellow to cream color, about 1 minute.
  3. (Mixture will look sugary.) Add egg and vanilla and beat 1 minute. Mix in lemon zest and poppy seeds. Reduce speed to low and add half of the flour mixture, mixing just to incorporate it completely. Beat in buttermilk just until blended.
  4. Beat in remaining flour mixture just until smooth.
  5. Divide batter among 6 paper-lined muffin tins, filling liner to 1/4 inch from top. Bake until tops feel firm and toothpick inserted in center of the cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool cupcakes 5 minutes in pan, then transfer in the paper liners to wire rack to cool thoroughly.
  6. To make topping: In large bowl with electric mixer on high speed, beat cream, powdered sugar, vanilla and lemon curd until firm peaks form. Spread generous 1/4 cup topping over top of each cupcake, mounding it toward the center. Lightly sprinkle centers with grated lemon zest. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. (Cupcakes can be refrigerated up to 2 days.)
