Meyer Lemon Cupcakes With Blueberry Buttercream Frosting

Hello everyone!  I'm Stacy and I'll be posting my recipes every now and then here at Country Pickins.  Let me first say I have a monster sweet tooth! I love just about anything sweet as long as it's not mind numbingly sweet that is.  I recently found some Meyer lemons at my local grocery store, if you've never had Meyer lemons before you're in for a treat as they are a slightly sweeter version of your run of the mill sour lemon.  During the making of these cupcakes I ate quite a bit of the batter, well more than a tablespoon at least!  Sooo yummy! O and the frosting is totally addictive! Don't take my word for it though, try it!







Meyer Lemon Cupcakes With Blueberry Buttercream Frosting


Ingredients:


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 Meyer lemon, juice and zest

  
Frosting:


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup Blueberry Spreadable fruit



Directions:
      
  •      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 
  •      Line muffin cups with paper liners. Mine made 18
  •      Cream sugar and 1/2 cup butter in the bowl of a stand mixer until fluffy. Beat in         eggs,   one at a time, and mix 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract into mixture with the second egg.
  •      Beat in flour and baking powder until thoroughly combined; beat in milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest to make a smooth batter.
  •       Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  •       Bake in the preheated oven until cupcake edges are slightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Mine took 20 minutes but ovens vary. Cool cupcakes completely. 
  •    Now time to make the frosting!  Mix 1 cup butter with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and salt until smooth and creamy. Next beat in confectioners' sugar, 1 cup at a time, to make a creamy frosting. Mix in the Blueberry Spread until nice and creamy! Once cupcakes are completly cool spread on your frosting and enjoy!
