  • 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


  • 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.
