You’ve heard of red velvet cupcakes – but what about blue velvet? These Wild Blueberry Velvet cupcakes consist of whole blueberries, cocoa powder, flour, buttermilk, oil, sugar, two different shades of gel paste (to get that deep blue and purple coloring) and several other items. The results are a rich, deeply flavored, dark blue cupcake. The frosting is a homemade cream cheese blend that has been tinted several different colors in order to produce a wild effect. These are both cute and tasty at the same time!

Lemon blueberry cupcakes sound like a magnificent summer treat – and they are, but they can also be enjoyed year-round. The batter of these cupcakes includes whole blueberries, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, cake flour, vanilla extract, milk and several other ingredients. Once they have baked, top them off with some lemon cream cheese frosting, a few whole blueberries, and serve. The best part about making these cupcakes it getting to eat them afterwards!

These blueberry cupcakes (or baby cakes, as this recipe calls them) are made from a combination of different gluten-free flours, including sorghum, rice, buckwheat and tapioca starch. The flavor comes from the fresh – or frozen, your choice – blueberries, some nutmeg, brown sugar and bourbon vanilla extract. Once these blueberry cupcakes have baked, drizzle their tops with some lemon glaze and then serve. Of course, you can always forego the lemon glaze, they are just as delectable without it!

Blueberries in a cupcake may sound a little crazy from the outset, but look at it this way: blueberry muffins are a breakfast staple, so why not change up the batter a little, add some extra sugar and turn them into cupcakes, right? Not that you’ve got the picture in your head, mentally add on a whipped cream frosting and a couple of fresh blueberries (for extra color). The trick to keeping the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of each cupcake? Coat them lightly in flour. Breakfast of champions, right?
