I was browsing recipe sites the other day, which I do, a couple of days each week for inspiration... :-) I found lots of cutie cupcakes on Baker Girl and I instantly felt that I just had to make my own batch of cupcakes. I went for Vanilla and Blueberry Cupcakes with Blueberry Frosting. Blueberries gives the frosting such a pretty natural colour without using any artificial colourings.
Since I'm a big fan of these sweet and delicious berries, this is my contribution for the Swedish blog Söta Sakers, monthly challenge with the encouragement of baking something personal.
Vanilla and Blueberry Cupcakes, 12 large
3 dl sugar
75 grams butter
1,5 dl milk
4,5 dl flour
2 tsp baking-powder
2 tsp vanilla sugar
2 dl blueberries
Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting
60 grams butter, room-temperature
5 dl icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla sugar
100 grams cream cheese
Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees C.
Whisk egg and sugar white and fluffy. Melt butter, add milk and bring to boil. Add to the egg and sugar mixture.
Combine flour, baking-powder and vanilla sugar. Add to mixture and carefully combine. Do not mix as this will give you dense cupcakes. Pour the mixture in muffin cups, fill it to 1/3, add blueberries and fill the muffin cup to 2/3 with mixture.
