One Final Summer Bake – MB Recipe 36

As summer comes to a close, I though it would be a good idea to take one last advantage of all the delicious berries available. Strawberry season is long gone and the drop in flavor is almost immediate. So I stayed clear of strawberries this time. For this recipe the star was blueberries.

As I was driving home from work on day, it suddenly came over me that it had been a while since I’ve had a cupcake. I couldn’t get the thought out of my head, so the next day I decided to make cupcakes. This also helped the Project since the cupcake chapter needed some love.

I love how you can see the little blueberries peeking out of the batter!

This time, I made the Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting. Frankly, making this recipe went off without a hitch and the end result was divine! I even brought in some to my coworkers and they didn’t last very long on the table.

One of the things I liked the most about this recipe was how you could see the lemon zest in the cream cheese frosting. A nice, tiny pop of yellow. A small peek into what flavors are inside. To further provide a hint of what you’ll be eating, I topped each frosted cupcake with a nice blueberry.

Since I only have 12 cupcake wells and the recipe makes 24, I decided to put the remaining batter in a 9-inch by 9-inch square pan. I even had extra frosting so it went right on the cake. Equally tasty and a nice change of shape.

Here you can see the yellow specks of lemon zest. I tried to make it fancy with a blueberry ring.

Sorry for the short post, it’s bee a crazy time. Hopefully I can get back to baking more often soon!

    1. Hi There!
      Currently, I do not have a cookbook. I do hope to one day, though. My blog focuses on cooking my through “The Magnolia Bakery Handbook” by Bobbie Lloyd. It is available wherever books are sold and definitely worth the purchase. Thanks for reading!
