Now you can top these with whatever you like, but I have taken the liberty of adding a blueberry cream cheese frosting recipe below and it is so sexy. And yes, frostings can be sexy. If you don’t believe me, make this one.


Preheat the oven to 140C.


Cream together the butter and caster sugar.


Add the eggs one at a time and combine.


Add in the flour, bicarb, baking powder and salt.


Add the vanilla and soured cream.


Mix this all together on a high speed.


Fold in the blueberries.


Spoon the mixture into a lined cupcake tin.


Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.

You can then pop this into a piping bag with a nozzle of your choice. (I went with a closed star Jem 1J)

If the cream cheese frosting isn’t quite firm enough to pipe with, keep adding icing sugar until you get the right consistency.
