Blueberry blueberry blueberry! Need I say more? These cupcakes are made with a blueberry muffin mix, filled with a homemade blueberry jam, and topped with a cream cheese frosting (lightly flavored with some blueberry juice).
An excellent morning treat, my favorite part is the blueberry jam in the middle. I am new to making any sort of jam like substance, or syrup type thing, so this was a wild and crazy success. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

So don't forget to go shopping! Here's what you should pick up:
  • Frosting (I went with a cream cheese Betty Crocker. One tub or two tubs is up to you, I had too much left over!)
  • Blueberry Muffin Mix (Betty Crocker is a babe!)
  • Anything Betty Crocker tells you you'll need on the back of the box (She's so thoughtful!)
  • 1 Box of Blueberries (Or two if you're hungry!)
  • Sugar
  • Lemon Juice

Step 1: You Can't Use Muffin Mix in a Cupcake!

Well, I did. Breaking the muffin mold, so to speak. And onwards we go! Grab that box of Betty Crocker! Follow her instructions on the path to blueberry morning goodness. I had never used the blueberry mix before, so I was a little shocked to find that she does include a small can of blueberries just for the occasion. Isn't she swell? A couple of eggs, a little oil and milk, rinse the blue berries, add the cake powder...remember to stir gently, as though you were tucking each of those blueberries in for a good night's rest.
Yummers! Those sound delicious! Like blueberry muffins, but better :)
