These blackberry vanilla cupcakes pair nicely with a vanilla frosting or buttercream. Try your own icing recipe or use mine in my recipe box and enjoy!
Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC).
In a mixer bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy (a few minutes). Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir dry mixture into wet (butter) mixture alternately with buttermilk, making 3 additions of dry ingredients and 3 of buttermilk. Fold in blackberries.
Using an ice cream scoop or 1/4-cup measurer, scoop batter into a muffin tin lined with cupcake liners. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, until cake tester (toothpicks or skewers work well too) inserted in centre comes out clean. Let cool in muffin tins for about 5 minutes, then remove and let cool completely before adding icing.
Pipe a swirl of icing on top of cupcake, and roll the iced cupcakes in a bowl of sanding sugar. Top with a blackberry or decoration of choice and enjoy!
Note: You can find a vanilla buttercream icing recipe in my recipe box.
These cupcakes are all about decoration. My favorites are the monster cupcakes. They are colorful, fun and so easy to achieve the cuteness. No piping skills required. I guarantee you. You can go as crazy as you want. After all they are monsters.
