Next email me what you want, and I'll get back to you with more info! And, corresponding to today's bake sale, let me introduce: Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes!!! Lemon and blueberry definitely scream Summer.
I love the way lemon and blueberry just go together. It tastes so heavenly.
Make sure NOT to skip the frosting it is such a key feature in this recipe.
The frosting is not a dense buttercream frosting. Instead it's a light and fluffy whipped cream and cream cheese frosting.
Have fun eating this amazing dessert, you will eat the whole plate, I warn you!
Time: 35 minutes
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/6 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoons lemon juice
zest of a lemon
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2oz cream cheese
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/4 cup pureed blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a muffin tin.
In a bowl whisk together flour, sugar, and baking powder. Add in the oil, buttermilk, lemon juice and zest of a lemon. With a cookie scoop, drop the batter into the prepared muffin tins. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes.
Meanwhile whip the heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Add in cream cheese and pureed blueberries. Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.
