Grapefruit and buttermilk are both high in nutrition, but create a tender texture in baked goods. Grapefruit is fantastic for digestion and the spices in the icing give the cupcakes a great nose...Making these is wonderful calming aromatherapy!

How to Make Chai Tea Creme Grapefruit Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer.

    Beat in egg white. Combine lemon extract, grapefruit juice, zest, and buttermilk in a small bowl. Add half the buttermilk mixture and beat on low speed. Add half the flour mixture and beat just until combined. Repeat with remaining buttermilk and flour mixture. Divide batter evenly into the prepared cups. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cupcakes spring back when the tops are pressed or until a toothpick tester comes out clean. Remove the cupcakes from the muffin pan an cool completely on a wire rack.

    In a medium bowl, beat ingredients for icing until smooth. Once the cupcakes are cool, use a small spatula or butter knife to ice them. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
