Blackberry Peach Cupcakes




 I love summer for it's fresh fruit.  Therefore I made some fresh and fruit filled cupcakes just for you.

Blackberry Peach Cupcakes:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 1/2 cups cake flour                                                                                                                                                                                                      1 Tablespoon baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, room temperature 

1 3/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs

1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1  cup of milk

5 quartered and peeled fresh peaches
1 cup of blackberries


Mix (sift) your dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl cream your butter and sugar.  Add in your eggs one at a time and then add your vanilla. Add your flour mixture into your butter mixture, slowly, one part at a time.  


Put your peaches and ONLY 5-7 blackberries into your food processor.  Let it pulse a few times until the mixture is chunky but not liquefied. You want some texture.  Then fold the fruit into your batter.  


Bake at 350 degrees for 20-21 minutes. 




 Blackberry Buttercream Icing:

1/2 cup of butter
5-6 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Large handful of blackberries

Puree a large handful of blackberries in your food processor.  Set it to the side.

Cream your butter.  Add one cup of powdered sugar at a time.  Add your vanilla and your blackberry mixture.  Beat until smooth and fluffy. You only need a little bit of blackberry puree so don't put more than just a handful of blackberries into your mix.  Add more powdered sugar to reach your desired consistency.
I hope you love this.  I think this was probably one of my favorite recipes yet.  Enjoy!!

  2. I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs: http://EggFreeLiving.com

  14. We made these yesterday for the 4th and they were just divine. Ended up keeping the cake portion straight peach but the flavor combination with the blackberry frosting was sugar's gift to summer. Thank you for the lovely recipe!
