Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes


I must say, these cupcakes are absolutely sinful, but worth it. This was my first attempt at lemon blueberry cupcakes and they were a huge hit with my co-workers (guinea pigs). 

A lot of the recipes I researched had Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting and I specifically wanted to avoid cream cheese frosting, since not everyone likes it. 

The cupcake recipe I tried is from best.momscook.co. There isn't a website name listed, just a list of recipes and an author. I personally found her recipe and information to be fabulous. She gives a lot of tips and tricks. I accidentally forgot to add the lemon zest to my batter, but I did put in her optional lemon extract. Next time, I will add both. I want more than a hint of lemon. In addition, make note that her recipe makes only approximately 15 cupcakes. I failed to notice this until the last minute and had to bat my eyes for my husband to please rush to the grocery store for more blueberries! I was able to get 18 cupcakes from my batter and was not upset in the least that I ended up with 36 cupcakes.

The lemon buttercream frosting recipe I found is from Two Sisters Crafting. It's titled The Best Lemon Buttercream Frosting and they are not lying! I have made this frosting twice and it is wonderful! I made this frosting for Easter and colored it yellow. This last time I chose not to color my frosting so I could decorate it with lemon zest and blueberries. These cupcakes not only looked delicious, they were delicious!

If you have any suggestions or comments for altering the recipe and/or new dessert ideas please feel free to comment :)
