Lemon Blackberry Cupcakes

Don’t you just love the flavor of lemon? It took me getting older to really appreciate lemon desserts and venture away from all things chocolate. These cupcakes are a delicious introduction to lemon if you haven’t taken the leap yet. Plus, they’re super easy.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Lemon Cake Mix. We’re starting with a simple base cupcake and then spicing it up.
  • Cake Mix Box Ingredients: eggs, butter, water.
  • Butter.
  • Powdered Sugar. 
  • Whipping Cream.
  • Lemons. We need lemon juice and lemon zest.
  • Blackberry Pie Filling. This will be our topping.
  • Flour.
  • Brown Sugar.
  • Sugar.
  • Cinnamon.

Lemon Blackberry Cupcakes Recipe

Since we are beginning with a boxed cake mix (one of my favorite baking hacks ever, by the way) this recipe is very easy.

  1. Bake the cupcakes. Follow the instructions below to cook and cool your cupcakes.
  2. Make frosting. While the cupcakes cool, use a mixer to combine all the ingredients and fill in a piping bag.
  3. Make the crumble. Simply mix the crumble ingredients with your fingers until they are the right consistency.
  4. Assemble. Pipe a ring of frosting onto your cupcake, leaving a bit of the center open for blackberries. Add a dollop of pie filling into the well and top by sprinkling the crumble.

If by chance you aren’t a big fan of blackberries (or perhaps even allergic) just skip the last step. The only place there are blackberries in this recipe is in that pie filling.

This is a really delicious dessert for spring and summer. I can’t wait to make them again!
