The Cupcake:
Preheat the oven to a 180OC and grease or line the muffin cups and keep aside.

Sift the flour with, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Then mix the entire sugar free into the flour, followed by the lemon zest and keep aside.

Now blend the eggs, butter separately using a handheld electric blender or in your food processor until they almost smoothly combine, then add 2 tbsp of the lemon curd and blend until it combines into a smooth mixture.

Add the egg and butter mixture to the flour mixture and gently fold together using a rubber or wooden spatula.

Now mix the lemon juice with the butter milk and slowly and gradually add the butter milk (in 3-4 batch) into the batter and mix gently. Do not whisk, just slowly fold.
