Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Makes approximately 24 cupcakes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of butter – softened
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 6 Tablespoon of fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 jar of Lemon Curd (or use my homemade lemon curd recipe!)
  • 1 1/4 cups of fresh blueberries
  • 1 Tablespoon of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of flour

Frosting:

  • 12 ounces of cream cheese – softened 
  • 1/4 cup of butter – softened
  • 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

Directions:

In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, using the whisk attachment, cream the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, milk, lemon juice and lemon zest. 

In a separate bowl mix the cake flour, baking powder and salt, and add to the mixing bowl a little at a time, mixing on low until all of the flour mixture is well blended. 

Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix again. 

In another bowl, mix the powdered sugar and flour until well blended, and mix in with the blueberries, to coat berries, then gently fold berries into the cupcake batter. 

Place cupcake liners in two 12 count muffin tins, and fill the liners about 2/3 full with the batter. 

Turn on the oven and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

Remove the cupcakes from the oven, and place cupcakes on a wire rack to cool.

When cupcakes have cooled, take out the center of the cupcakes, with a cupcake corer, and place the removed piece of cupcake beside the cupcake. 

Place a blueberry in the center, and a teaspoon of lemon curd on top of the blueberry. 

Place the piece of cupcake that you removed with the corer back in the cupcake, and press down slightly. 

In a stand mixer, with the whisk attachment, cream the cream cheese, butter, lemon juice and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Add the lemon zest and blend until smooth. 

Scrape the sides of the bowl, and mix the frosting with a spoon or spatula. 

With the frosting in the pastry bag, swirl frosting on top of the cupcakes, top with a whole blueberry, and blueberries mashed with sugar, if desired.  

Place cupcakes in a single layer container, and place in the refrigerator for at least two hours, to chill the cupcakes, or overnight for best results. 

Enjoy!

 

Mashed blueberries:

Place a few whole blueberries in a bowl, and sprinkle sugar on top of them, and with a potato masher, smash the blueberries and sugar until mashed together. 

You can spoon a little bit of this over the cupcakes right before serving.

Alternatively, my recipe for blueberry compote works even better here.

Notes:

Keep cupcakes in the refrigerator for 3 – 4 days in a covered container.  Cupcakes can be frozen for up to 30 days. Make sure to store them in a freezer bag, or airtight container.  To serve, thaw overnight in the refrigerator, and frost before serving.
