Wonderful Blueberry Coffee Cake Cupcakes

I have been making these for a long time. I used to make them as a "Coffee Cake" but like making them in the individual larger cupcakes now. You can freeze them up for a rainy day...or just eat them all!
I have made them with blueberries, blackberries, pears, apples or peaches....but if you do that make sure to pat dry the fruit first.
If you want to use the apples or pears, make sure you cook them first. (I always cook them up and add a bit of cinnamon, sugar and a hint of nutmeg)
ENJOY!
