Blueberry Maple Cupcakes

Birthdays (and Blogiversaries) always call for cake or cupcakes to celebrate. These Blueberry Maple Cupcakes are extra special and unique. They taste like the cupcake version of blueberry pancakes. The texture of the cupcake is a little more like a muffin than a cupcakes and it’s filled with beautiful, sweet blueberries. The frosting is to die for. Definitely one of my favorite frosting recipes. I like to really pile it on the cupcakes. It has the perfect texture- creamy, thick, and smooth, plus an incredible maple syrup flavor from some maple flavoring. If you don’t have maple flavoring, you will not regret purchasing some for this recipe. You could probably sub pure maple syrup but you will not get the intense maple flavor.

PREP: 20 mins
COOK: 20 mins
TOTAL: 40 mins
SERVINGS: 12

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Maple Buttercream

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temp
  • 2 teaspoons maple flavoring
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • extra blueberries to decorate

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin pans with liners (12).
  • Using mixer fitted with a paddle attachment beat butter and sugar until fluffy.
  • On low-speed add eggs and egg white and beat until fully mixed in.
  • In a medium bowl sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together. (Instead of sifting, you can run a whisk through the ingredients. Essentially accomplishes the same thing- aeration and removal of clumps- without making a mess.)
  • Mix sour cream, milk, and vanilla together.
  • Add 1/3 of dry ingredients to mixer, then 1/2 of wet. Followed by another 1/3 of dry. Finish with remaining wet and dry ingredients. Careful not to overmix.
  • Fold in blueberries and fill muffin liners 3/4 full. Bake 18-20 minutes or until very tops are fully cooked.
  • To make frosting, beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Add maple flavoring and sugar and beat until smooth.
  • Cool cupcakes before frosting. Use a pastry bag fitted with a large star and swirl around the outer part of cupcake and gradually come inwards with each swirl. Or just slather it on there.
  • Decorate with blueberries.
