Lemon Cupcakes with Blackberry Butter Cream Icing

It was getting close to Mother’s day and I was wanting to create something with all the blackberries I have in my backyard and boy do I have a ton of those beauties! Looking at recipes I came across Lemon cupcakes and blackberry butter cream icing. Oh my…so good! I thought all the moms would love them as well.

Here is the recipe, but I added my Young Living Lemon Vitality Essential Oil.

These are the ingredients for both the cupcakes and the icing

• 1 cup of sugar

• 1/2 cup of butter

• 2 eggs

• 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla

• 1 1/2 cups flour

• 1 3/4 teaspoons of baking powder

• 1/2 cup low-fat milk

• 1 lemon for juice and zest (I added 3 drops of lemon vitality essential oil)

• 1 cup butter , softened

• 1 teaspoon of vanilla

• 1/4 teaspoon salt

• 4 cups confectioner’s sugar

• 1/2 cup seedless blackberries jam (I make blackberry jelly, so I used mine and it is seedless)

Directions :

Preheat oven to 350

Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners

Cream sugar and 1/2 cup butter in a bowl in a stand mixer until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, and mix 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla into mixture.

Beat in flour and baking powder until thoroughly combined. Beat in milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest (plus 1 to 3 drops of lemon essential oil) to make a smooth batter.

Bake in the preheated oven until cupcakes edges are slightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into center of cupcake comes out clean 20 to 25 minutes. Cool cupcakes completely

Icing:

Beat 1 cup butter with 1 teaspoon vanilla and salt until smooth and creamy. (I used 1 drop of Lemon Essential oil) I Love to add little lemon to my blackberries!

Beat in confectioners sugar, 1 cup at a time, to make creamy frosting. Beat in blackberry jam. Spread frosting on cooled cupcakes.

They were a big hit! Everyone loved them!

Here are my little beauties! They were so good!
