Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes begin with a moist and tender lemon cupcake that’s dotted with juicy blueberries. Topped with an incredible sweet and tangy delicate lemon frosting, blueberry lemonade icing and a blueberry.
These Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes were created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent some amazing samples by some of our sponsor companies to use if I wanted, but as always content and opinions are 100% honest and my own.
While pretty and homemade, this is a very simple recipe that’s easy to make and perfect for spring & summer.
It’s day 2 of our 2019 #SummerDessertWeek! Huge thanks to Angie over at Big Bear’s Wife for creating this event, securing our sponsors and putting a lot of hard work into the entire event.
This week you will discover desserts galore! You are sure to find a dessert that fits any need. From a backyard pool party to a simple summer snack. A group of us have come together to share some of our favorite summertime dessert recipes with you!
I chose to share these Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes today. They are incredible and while they look incredibly elegant, they are so easy to put together and they were a huge hit at a recent brunch.
The lighter lemon flavor blends beautifully with the sweetness of the blueberries. The cupcakes are divine! They even have blueberries in the batter!
I had a little help from my friends at Wilton and Adam’s Extract to make these cupcakes. For Summer Dessert Week Wilton provided us with baking goods galore, and Adam’s Extracts provided us with plenty of extract to make up lots of baked goods!
They are also part of our giveaway which you will find at the bottom of the post until it is over.
A few answers to frequently asked questions about these Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes:
Can I make this into a blueberry lemon cake? Yes. It’s enough for a 2-layer 8 inch layer cake. Line the bottom of the cake pans first, then grease the sides. They’ll take about 21-25 minutes to bake.
Can I make this recipe ahead of time? Yes. You can make the cake and the frosting up to 24 hours ahead. Make the cake and allow it to cool completely. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, and store at room temperature. Do not pre-frost the cupcakes. Store the frosting in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Allow it to sit at room temperature about 20-30 minutes and blend it again. Decorate as desired.
