Summer Berry Cupcakes Recipe

How to Make Berry Cupcakes

To make these cupcakes, start by whisking together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In a separate large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until combined. Add the butter, and yogurt, and whisk until combined. 

The key to getting a perfect cupcake is to not overmix the batter, so be sure to fold the berries in gently. You’ll have beautiful, fluffy cupcakes in no time!

Summer Berry Cupcakes Recipe

Divide the batter evenly between a cupcakes pan lined with cupcake cases. Fill each case 2/3 full and bake for

15 – 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow the cupcakes to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Add the rest of the sugar, and beat until combined. Pour in the milk , and beat until the frosting is light and fluffy.

If it’s too thick, add more milk.

TIPS

  • Feel free to use either fresh or frozen berries for this recipe. 
  • If you have frozen berries, there is no need to thaw them before using them.
  • To make sure your buttercream turns out the way it should make sure your butter is soft before you start. I suggest setting your two sticks of butter out on the counter for at least an hour before you begin. You’ll know your butter is soft enough when you can press your finger into the top and an indentation is easily made. Don’t use cold or melted butter, as it won’t work.
  • I love decorating these cupcakes with fresh berries. 
  • If you are going to decorate cupcakes, I suggest using the tiniest berries you can find. They look better and don’t weigh down the frosting as much. Farmers’ markets have better options for this than grocery stores.

Today’s recipe is the fruitiest cupcake EVER! These also take the crown for the prettiest cupcake EVER. What do you think?
