Lemon Crumble Cupcakes

Lemon Crumble Cupcakes are delicious served warm and straight from the oven. The beauty is that they don't require frosting as the crumble already gives them the "finishing touch".

This is an easy lemon cake recipe that I now make as cupcakes. It can be served warm with a dollop of cream and it immediately becomes a great dessert.
