Sweet “Blue”berry – Cupcake Recipe

This is a recipe for fashion success. The sweetest little “blue”berry cupcake on the block. The gorgeous Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Cabas Chyc handbag in blue.

Isn’t it a tasty treat for your eyes?

Full price is around $2,000. Which is not bad for an icon of fashion.

However, if you are looking for a tasty “blue”berry treat that is far more attainable…

…let me recommend this.

Blueberry muffin with cream cheese icing/frosting:

The Cupcake/Muffin:

  • About 410g (2½ cups) blueberries + 60g (1/2 cup)
  • 125g (½ cup) butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 140g (3/4 cup) brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 150g (2/3 cup) sour cream
  • 350g (2¾ cups) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Icing sugar, for dusting
1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 × 12 cup muffin pans with paper patty cups.
2. Wash blueberries and leave to dry on paper towels.
3. Place butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla essence and sour cream in a bowl; stir to combine. Sift the flour and baking powder in another bowl. Add butter mixture; stir until just combined. Gently fold blueberries into the batter(saving about 60g / 1/2 cup to place on top once iced).
4. Fill the paper cases two-thirds full with batter. Bake for about 20 minutes. Place pans on a wire rack and leave muffins to cool. Dust with icing sugar just before serving.
Makes about 24:  Prep Time = 25 minutes: Cooking Time = 20 minutes
The Icing:
  • 120g cream cheese, softened
  • 60g butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 250g (1 cup) icing sugar mixture
  • mint leaves to garnish
  1. Place cheese, butter and vanilla in a bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat until pale. Gradually add icing sugar mixture, beating until combined.

When muffins are cool they are ready for you to add the icing. Sprinkle a few blueberries over the top of each muffin. Garnish with small fresh mint leaves.

I’m pretty sure if you don’t fall in love with one of these sweet “blue”berry cupcakes, you’ll definitely fall in love with the other!
