To me, blueberries are the epitome of summer. I know it’s finally summer in Canada when blueberries are being sold by the truckload at the local grocery store and don’t cost an arm and a leg (like they do during the winter season). Blueberries are such a versatile fruit that always inspires me to experiment while baking. I love the pairing of a sweet blueberry with a tart lemon flavour. These cupcakes definitely deliver in that department. I cannot stress how impressed I was with how these cupcakes turned out. They are absolutely delicious. Dense, moist and full of lemon and blueberry flavour. Plus, you really cannot go wrong with rich blueberry buttercream frosting! I honestly can’t wait to make them again for my next summer gathering so I can share these treats with even more people.
I adapted this recipe from Brooke at Baking with Basil. I highly recommend you give them a try very soon!
