Lemon cream cheese cupcakes

These yummy cupcakes are full of flavour. With cream cheese added to the ingredients it's taste like a cross between a butter cake & Japanese baked cheese cake. 
Flavour is amazing as the zesty lemon is refreshing. 
(Recipe adapted from Tempt: cupcakes to excite by Betty Saw with slight adjustment) 

135g Plain flour
1/2. Tsp baking powder 
1/2. Tsp bicarbonate of soda
125g butter (softened at room temperature)
100g cream cheese
130g caster sugar
2 eggs
Grated zest of one lemon. 
1. Tbsp lemon juice. 

Preheat the oven at 180c. 
Sift the flour with baking powder & bicarbonate of soda together.  Set aside.

Cream the butter & cream cheese till light and fluffy then add the sugar and whisk for a few minutes so its all combined. Scrape down the sides to make sure everything is mixed together. 
Add the lemon zest and mix it in.

Whisk in the eggs one at a time.
