Blueberry Cupcakes (Made with Fresh Blueberries)
Cupcakes are a great way to make up individual servings of sweets that most people really like. They are a personable and fun way to serve a treat or dessert. These blueberry cupcakes (made with fresh blueberries) are fresh and delicious and have the extra nutritional bump of blueberries.
Blueberries are a very nutritious berry. They are also the second most favored berry, right behind strawberries. They are also extremely high in anti-oxidants. Studies show that organic berries are higher in anti-oxidants than other berries so consider organic berries when you can.
As well, recent studies have shown that blueberries help to improve memory as well as other cognitive functions that we often associate with aging. So if you have a bad memory, try eating blueberries to help improve it. Blueberries also do not suffer nutritional losses (or not significant ones) when they are frozen. So you can buy or pick your berries and then freeze them and be confident that when you eat them later they are still a nutritious snack. Blueberries are also full of vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals, and low on the glycemic index, making them a great choice for a snack, topped on cereal in the morning, yogurt for lunch, and other ways that you might come up with.
This recipe calls for a cup of fresh blueberries as part of its home made cupcakes. You may be able to increase this amount if you like. As well, you can add more berries on top of the cupcakes when you serve them to make them pretty and appealing as well as upping the nutritional value.
The frosting that is suggested to accompany these blueberry cupcakes is a cream cheese frosting. This type of frosting is quick and easy to make and offers a wonderful tangy alternative to a buttercream frosting.
