I love summer! It’s my favorite season of the year. My father-in-law brings us fresh berries almost weekly during the summer. So much that I can barely keep up! He brought us some blackberries over the weekend and I couldn’t wait to make cupcakes. I’ve had these in my mind for months but haven’t gotten around to making them. Until now. They were worth the wait, delicious!

What You'll Need:

For the cake

1 cup blackberries

2 tbsp. sugar

2 cup flour

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 cup butter, melted

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup heavy cream

For the frosting

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup cream cheese

2 limes, juice and zest

1 tbsp. blackberry mix

5-6 cups powdered sugar

How You'll Do It:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cupcake tins with liners; set aside.

Beat together blackberries and sugar for about 2 minutes; set aside.

Whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside.

Beat together melted butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla.

Add flour mixture and heavy cream in alternating increments.

Pour about a tablespoon of batter into bottom of liner. Top with about a tsp. of blackberry then top with about 2 more tbsp. of batter (until liner filled 2/3).

Bake for 18-20 minutes.

Let cool completely.

To start the frosting, beat together butter and cream cheese until smooth.

Add lime juice, lime zest and blackberry mix. Mix until fully combined.

Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, until desired consistency.

Frost cupcakes and enjoy!
