My youngest loves anything blueberry and I was proud to wake him up this morning with some blueberry love. These cupcakes are truly bursting with flavor and delicious!

Note: If you prefer something lighter than the buttercream frosting, please see the recipe and directions for Whipped Cream Frosting on my Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes recipe on this site.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These cupcakes are amazing! No one will guess they start with a boxed cake mix. The smell is so fragrant your kitchen is going to smell amazing. Blueberry flavor shines in each layer of the cupcakes. Super moist the cupcake has fresh blueberries in every bite. The frosting is sweet but full of luscious blueberry essence. Not only are these tasty, but they also make for a beautiful display.

How to Make Bursting Blueberry Cupcakes~Robynne

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare cake as directed. Mix in butter and blueberry extracts. Add fresh blueberries, and mix by hand gently.
  2. Fill lined cupcake liners 3/4 full with blueberry cake batter. Bake as directed. Allow to cool completely.
