I found this recipe on 'Our Best Bites' Another recipe site I found on facebook, just like this one! :) Again, I'm posting the original recipe as I found it. I did a couple tweaks, will explain later.
As with the Banana with Molasses Frosting Cupcakes, I made this one for my sons wedding, as you can probably tell...It got rave reviews!!! AND (shame on me ;) starts with a box mix.

How to Make Blueberry Vanilla Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  • 1mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl with whisk, then add wet ingredients. Beat for 2 minutes until fluffy. Fill 36 cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake according to pkg directions.
  • 2*I did not use package directions... I got 28ish cupcakes out of it, and then I just did the usual for cupcakes, 350 for 17 min...almost always come out perfect! These are really white on top and you may think they are not done...touch the top, if the dent you make with your finger pops right back out, they are done!
  • 3When cupcakes are cool, fill with blueberry simlpy fruit. Then frost and top with a single blueberry!
  • 4Frosting: Whisk together milk and flour in a small saucepan, heat over medium heat, whisking continuously until it starts to thicken, let it cook while stirring until you can start to see the bottom of the pan when stirring, then its thick enough. Cool flour mixture completely.
    With a mixer beat butter and sugar for one minute or until well combined and fluffy. While beating add in the thickened flour mixture and vanilla...beat 7-8 minutes or until smooth, light and silky. This will loo disgusting at first, but it does come together in the end :)
  • 5Another frosting idea...Using fresh whipped cream is very good as frosting on these as well.
    I also have made a marshmellow creme frosting for them...I believe actually that is what was used for the wedding.
