We are keeping things fresh & fruity this Sunday with a Lemon Blueberry Cupcake! This is a deliciously light recipe with lots of flavour. Hope you enjoy!
To make the lemon blueberry cupcakes you will need:
2 1/3 cups plain flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 tablespoons lemon zest, grated
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup milk
1 cup blueberries
1 tablespoon plain flour
For the frosting you will need:
1 1/2 cups icing/powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon lemon zest, grated
1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon milk
To decorate I used a few fresh blueberries and some fresh mint leaves!

Emilia & I had so much fun baking these! We even got to trial our new KitchenAid which was fabulous...I don't know how I survived for so long without one! Yes, they are an investment which is probably why it took me this long to purchase one but I am so glad I did. If you love to bake I definitely recommend it!
I also SWEAR I did not plan this but Emilia and I are matching (again) in this cupcake video with our stripes, ha ha! Last week we were both in turquoise and it was completely by accident! I am actually wearing a nursing dress which I'd never worn before - it was very comfortable & convenient! Emilia's t-shirt is from Zara. Her bow is from H&M.
Jonathan thinks she looks like me when I was a baby in this picture :) She is a real character...now that she knows the deal with the cupcake baking, Emilia will actually grab her apron and start to push her stool over to the kitchen island so that she can help me bake! And she wants to taste EVERYTHING, including the flour mixture...
We hope you're enjoying this summer baking series as much as we are! Let us know if you bake these Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes (they are very yummy - Jonathan gave his stamp of approval!) and tag us on Instagram/Twitter!
