 You will enjoy these great cupcakes. After seeing a blueberry and goat cheese pie I thought, What a great idea for a cupcake. I promise it will take more time to say their name then it will be for you to eat them up! Enjoy.

And if you are not a fan of goat cheese, these cupcakes go great with any type of frosting or eat them plain with butter! Yum!

Here is what you will need for your cupcakes..

1c White Sugar

1 Stick of butter (Room Temp)

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 3/4c all-purpose flour

1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

2  tablespoons milk

1 1/2c blueberries (rinse, dry and stems removed)


Step 2: Roast the berries.

This step will not only concentrate the sugars in the berries but it will also give the cupcakes a deep purple color without having to use  food coloring.

You could skip this step and add an extra 1/4 cup of sugar but it takes no time at all, and then the name wouldn't sound as fancy.

What to do...

Spread the berries out on a cookie sheet.  ( A little foil helps make clean up go faster) Roast berries for 10 minutes at 350 or until they darken and start to pop.

Go ahead and keep the oven on when they are done and it will be preheated for your cup cakes.

After they are done set them on a cooling rack as you make the rest of the batter.

Thanks a lot! If you make a butter cream version of the icing that will hold up better at room temp, but my fiance dislikes butter cream so I went with this option.
