Cupcakes with a delicate lemon flavor, perfect with tea.

Ingredients for 18-20 cupcakes:
200 g of vanilla sugar (*)
125 g of butter
half a glass of milk (150 ml)
juice of one lemon
250 g of gluten-free flour (I used the BiAglut flour)
8 g of baking powder
1 pinch of salt
200 g of icing sugar
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
gluten-free colored sprinkles
(*) store the white sugar in a jar containing a vanilla bean
Beat eggs with a pinch of salt for two minutes, add sugar, a little at a time, continuing to whisk for 10 minutes. Add the melted butter and beat again.
Add lemon juice, milk, and stir, then add the sifted flour with baking powder.
Beat with the whisk until the mixture is smooth.
Fill the molds halfway and bake at 180°C for 15 minutes. Check with a toothpick if they are cooked.
Once cool prepare the glaze: mix the icing sugar with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and, if necessary, water to obtain the desired consistency and put a spoon over each cupcake. Decorate with colored sprinkles.
