Make certain that you let the cupcakes get to room temperature which will take about 20 minutes or so. Once they’ve cooled down, they’ll be ready to frost and enjoy!

Make certain to take your time measuring out and adding the ingredients to make the flour mixture. Use a separate bowl to make the frosting, and try not to sneak any samples! Baking cupcakes from scratch and homemade icing is such a fun treat!

My boys love this simple recipe and ask me to make it all the time. I love to whip them up once it’s blueberry season so I can use fresh blueberries for that extra added flavor! They never complain about this fact at all!

Can you use frozen blueberries for this recipe?

You can try but fresh will be better because they won’t release as much liquid as the frozen blueberries. If at all possible, refrain from using frozen fruit in this recipe. It might not make up right and cause soggy cupcakes.

How do you know when cupcakes are done baking?

Use the toothpick (or butter knife) test. Just insert the toothpick into the middle of the cupcake and if it comes out clean, the cupcakes are done cooking and need to be taken out of the oven. The toothpick inserted method works like a charm!
