These Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting is a great holiday idea to treat your loved ones! They have a perfect combination of sweet and tart flavors that everyone will love!
Are you still thinking about how to surprise your man for Valentine’s Day? Of course, it will be nice to give him some cool gadget or a new book that he loves. But what if you bake something special for him? Everyone loves sweets, and Valentine’s Day is a perfect occasion to sweeten up your day.
You might ask, what am I going to bake for my man to celebrate this romantic day? Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes! They are fantastic! I think that blueberry and lemon work so well together, adding a great combination of sweet and tart flavor. However, the best part of these cupcakes is cream cheese frosting with a touch of lemon zest that makes all the difference! I was experimenting with this icing for a while and I think I came up with the best flavor and texture.
First, to the whipped cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar, I add a tablespoon of whole milk. It makes the icing softer and easier to pipe out. Second, I add lemon zest, which adds that beautiful additional flavor which makes all the difference.
This recipe makes 9 cupcakes, which is the perfect amount just to treat yourself for a special occasion. If you want to increase the portions by two, just double all the ingredients below.
