These blueberry cupcakes are breakfast for dessert. Fresh blueberries are mixed into vanilla cake -- rather than muffin -- batter, which is then topped with cinnamon streusel and swirls of blueberry-cream cheese icing. This recipe appeared in episode 308 of Martha Bakes.

    Hello! I've got a question. What's is cup cake flour? I've look for it in the supermarket but I can not find it yet. Can I use all-purpose flour instead? Thanks

      I believe what you are asking is what type of flour - in Canada it is called 'cake and pastry' flour. It is not all-purpose...

      Hello, are you referring to "1 2/3 cups cake flour (not self-rising)"... if you are, it is 1-2/3 CUPS of cake flour. Hope that helps! :) Happy baking! :)

    The frosting was divine. Just enough sweet without being cloy and I love the swirl that putting the berries on top makes.

    Took these to a staff breakfast and got stopped in the hall all day with people raving over them! I like the mini recipe idea--turns out everyone cut them in half and shared them! Also, I didn't feel like pulling out all of my pastry bags and tips, so I just used a ziploc bag, filled it up and cut the corner off. Perfect icing and it matched the pictures exactly!! Thanks for another great recipe Martha!!

    Love the texture of the cupcake - soo smooth and moist. I was wondering about the best size for the decorating tip in order to get the icing as perfect as on the picture. I believe I used a 12 and I assume I need to use a bigger one? Also, is the icing supposed to be sticky/soft or is there a way to get it hardened a bit for easy transport? I'm thinking about freezing the cupcakes and icing separately and then redecorate only the amount I need so they last longer. Great recipe!!!
