These cupcakes/donuts smell AMAZING and taste DIVINE!

First bite: lime-y sourness.. 
Second bite: sweetness kicks in and counterbalances the sour

The flavor is quite complexing-ly good(:
It's definitely not a one- tone sweetness or one- tone sourness!
And omg, the crust..

I baked them a little longer and got a super nice CRISPPPP crust! And!! The crispiness lasted even overnight! (: Not lining the pans gave these babies more and more and more and more crisp! The whole side and bottom were super nice and crunchy. And as you see, the donut version had a even higher ratio of crispyness vs the moist fluffy center. I love both the cupcake and donut forms.

Taste: 5 stars out of 5 (sour and sweet, complex flavor)
Texture: 5 stars out of 5 (light fluffy center with crispy crust- perfect!)

I am usually not a fan of citrus baked goods.. but these are definitely changing my mind about them! Maybe the crispyness made up for the hint of citrus. Either way.. give it a try if you are a fan for crispy cupcakes!

This is ultimate recipe for crispy cupcakes.
