Graham Cupcakes with Key Lime Cream Cheese Frosting

Need an easy fun cupcake recipe? Ming makes cupcakes has 33 different ones. These graham cupcakes with key lime cream cheese frosting are delicious. The recipe made 12 normal sized cupcakes. But I did have a lot of icing left over. I'm sure there are more recipes waiting for me to use it up.


1 cup flour
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick butter, room temp.
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk

Mix flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Beat in butter, sugar and mix thoroughly. Beat in eggs, vanilla and milk. Pour into lined cupcake pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.


4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 stick butter, room temp.
2 cups confectioners sugar
2 Tbsp. key lime juice

Mix together ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Frost cupcakes. Top with crushed graham cracker crumbs. Top with lime slices.

Instead of lime slices, I used lime shavings. This makes your limes go a lot further.

What is your favorite cupcake?
