Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Frosting

Zitronen-Heidelbeer-Cupcakes mit Zitronenfrosting

I want spring! How about you? Can I interested you in a bluberry lemon cupcake with lemon frosting? I can assure you, with this cupcake you will invite the colors and scent of spring onto your plate. These lemon cupcakes are moist, tart, and have blueberries as an extra bonus. You can omit the blueberries, but I just love the combination of lemon with blueberries. The frosting is prepared with cream cheese and flavored with lemon zest and lemon juice. This cupcake is perfect for any occasion, be it for a birthday, coffee invte, or for Sunday guests. They can be prepared beforehand, but also don’t take that much time to prepare fresh.

Zitronen-Heidelbeer-Cupcakes mit ZitronenfrostingYes, I already have another double lemon cupcake recipe her on the blog, but rest assured, both, the cupcake as well as the frosting is completely different. Whereas the first the dough is different and filled with lemon curd, this one has blueberries. Also, this frosting is prepared with cream cheese and lemon whereas the first is a Swiss Meringue Buttercream, so it does make sense to check out this recipe. As stated, super moist and tart, prefect for a lemon lover.

I didn’t want to make very fancy frosting when I decided for these cupcakes. For that reason I sliced a lemon and took some additional blueberries. I love the simplicity, yet beauty of it. Of course it is entirely up to you how you want to frost these. You may also go for a plain vanilla buttercream, a Swiss Meringue or anything else you enjoy. I love this cream cheese frosting.

    Liebe Jenny, herrlich hört sich das an.
    Ich liebe Blaubeeren und Zitrone als Kombi genauso gern. Und da ich nächste Woche Geburtstag feiere, kommen diese süßen Dinger auf den Speiseplan.

    Liebe Grüße Ani
