Blueberry has never been one of my favorite flavors.  I didn’t like blueberries at all until I discovered that not all blueberries are huge and flavorless – like most of the ones you can find at the supermarket.  Last summer, I bought a bag of fresh, tiny blueberries at our local farmers’ market and ate almost the whole bag in one sitting. I’m now a blueberry believer!

I wanted a blueberry cupcake that would be special (not interchangeable with all the mediocre blueberry muffins out there) and, as is always my rule, it had to be something that I would like.  I ended up with these:

Each bite of these blueberry cupcakes brings you another burst of flavor. Sure, there are the juicy blueberries that pop in your mouth, but there are also oats from your favorite granola, dark chocolate chunks, and a hint of maple and apple butter in the cake itself.  They’re topped with homemade whipped cream.

These are the chocolate chunks that I use.  Chocolate chips would also work.

  1. Karinasays:

    Yum!
    I’ve just been given some verjus/verjuice – I had no idea what it was but it looks good! Any ideas on how to use it in cupcakes?

  2. very nice! I have some blueberries in my fridge right now that I could:
    A) Add them to some yogurt for a healthy breakfast…
    or…OR..
    B) Make these super yummy looking cupcakes.

    seriously, who are we kidding, we both know that this is no contest :)

  3. Stefsays:

    Karina – I hadn’t heard of it either. But, I just looked into it. I wonder if you could mix a little bit of it into whipped cream, like I do with balsamic vinegar. Now, I really want to get my hands on some.

    Cookies – Hah! Enjoy!

  4. I love the idea of incorporating apple butter. Well Done! I’ve been having a lot of success using whole wheat pastry flour in replace of all-purpose flour in my muffin tin experiments such as these blueberry honey muffins: http://www.muffintinmania.com/2010/08/blueberry-honey-cornmeal-muffins.html

  5. These look yummy! I’m sure I’ll be trying them out soon with my new blueberry obsession. I made some blueberry lemon cupcakes last week that were scrummy – check them out here: http://blogamomma.com/blueberry-lemon-cupcakes/
