Blueberry lemonade cupcakes!

Hey guys! I am loving summer, what about you? I’m excited to be posting these Blueberry Lemonade cupcakes! That just sounds so summery, doesn’t it? I just love the way these cupcakes turned out! So, the cake part of these cupcakes is a yellow cake with blueberries folded into the batter, then we top it with delicious lemonade frosting!Delicious yellow cake with folded in blueberries, topped with sweet lemonade frosting!

So, I was kind of scared to do this recipe because I had to make up the recipe. The batter was pretty easy to do, I just made a yellow cake and gently folded in a cup of blueberries at the end. to make the frosting lemonade, I added two tablespoons of lemon juice to it.Delicious yellow cake with folded in blueberries, topped with sweet lemonade frosting!

I love this recipe, the juicy deliciousness of the blueberry cake, balanced with the sweet and tart taste of the lemonade frosting! It is so good!

For the cake
  1. 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  2. 1 1/2 cups sugar
  3. 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/2 cup butter, softened
  6. 1 1/4 cups milk
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  8. 3 eggs
  9. 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
For the frosting
  1. 3 cups powdered sugar
  2. 1/3 cup butter, softened
  3. 2-3 teaspoons lemon juice
  4. 1-2 tablespoons milk
For the cake
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl beat all ingredients except blueberries on low speed for 30 seconds constantly scraping bowl.
  3. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes, occasionally scraping bowl.
  4. Lightly fold in blueberries, I recommend taking the bowl off the mixer and using a spoon for this part so the blueberries don't get smashed.
  5. Line cupcake pans with cupcake liners, fill cupcakes to about 1/2 to 3/4 full.
  6. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minute or until toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Let cool completely before frosting.
For the frosting
  1. In a large bowl mix powdered sugar and butter together until blended.
  2. Stir in lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of the milk.
  3. Slowly beat in just enough of remaining milk to make the frosting smooth and spreadable.
  4. If frosting is too thin beat in more powdered sugar, if to thick, add more milk.
  5. Put in a frosting bag and frost cupcakes once they are cooled .
Notes
  1. If needed, beat in more lemon juice until it tastes right.
