National Lemon Cupcake Day always comes on time: baking lovers wait for it every year to gather with friends at a large table and taste a delicious treat. Today you can not think about the figure and limitations! The holiday solemnly grants us freedom in the choice of food.
Researchers claim that the first prototypes of cupcakes appeared in ancient Greece – culinary specialists came up with the idea of mixing fruit and dough and baking the mixture in ovens. Later this experience spread throughout Europe. For the first time, the cupcake recipe appeared in the cookbook of Amelia Simmons – she was an American. As you can see, the girl got into history.
Cupcake flavors are impossible to list in an article, but lemon is the king of them all! Dough with refined taste won the hearts of many people on the planet. In the 20th century, people invented frosting: it is still used in cupcakes today. Unfortunately, the person who came up with this idea has not been found, but we are very grateful to him. National Day also did not find its founder.
