Blueberry Cupcakes

Blueberry Cupcakes
I rarely make boxed cupcakes but sometimes I just don’t have time to dedicate hours to dessert. I will never take credit for a boxed cake but I do still feel like you need to put your own personal twist. This cupcake recipe allows you to take a simple box cake and dress it up into something beautifully delicious! Plus you can use those yummy farmers market blueberries that you want so bad to buy but don’t know what to do with them.
Blueberry Cupcakes
What you need:
  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried blueberries
  • 1 pkg. white cake mix
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 stick butter, at room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

How it comes to life:

Heat oven to 350°F. Line 24-well cupcake pan with paper liners. In a Ninja food processor, pulse freeze-dried blueberries until finely ground powder forms; set aside.

 

Dried Blueberries

 

Prepare cake mix according to package directions, adding 1/2 fresh blueberries. Divide batter evenly among liners in prepared pan. Bake 15 min. or until done. Let cool.

 

White Cake

 

Using mixer on medium, beat cream cheese and butter 3 min. or until light and fluffy. Add sugar, vanilla extract and ground blueberry powder. Beat 1 min. or until smooth.
