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!!
