[Recipe] Berry Cupcakes


Berry Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Icing adapted from this fantastic recipe: Raspberri Cupcakes

Soft Moist Cupcakes =)


Leave the butter, eggs and cream cheese out and bring to room temperature

Ingredients for Plain Cupcakes:

  • 125g Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
  • 3/4 cup Caster Sugar
  • 2 Eggs (room temperature preferable)
  • 1/3 cup Orange Juice
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 225g Self-raising Flour

Ingredients for Lemon Cream Cheese Icing:

  • 125g Light Philadelphia Cream Cheese Block (or any Cream Cheese) at room temperature
  • 200 150g sifted icing sugar
  • a few teaspoons lemon juice
  • half a teaspoon of lemon zest

Steps to Plain Cupcakes:

  1. Preheat oven to 180C and line a cupcake tray with paper cases.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together using an electric beater until light and smooth.
  3. Add eggs one at a time and beat in well.
  4. Add the juice and flour and quickly mix until combined, avoid overbeating the flour.
  5. Throw in half a pack of washed frozen berries (thawed or not) or a full punnet of fresh berries of your choice. It takes the same amount of time to bake and makes the cakes super super moist.

Steps to Cream Icing:

  1. Use a spatula and soften the cream cheese, then mix in icing sugar with a beater.
  2. Add lemon juice one teaspoon at a time, mixing it in well each time, use speed 2 until you have desired texture. Add lemon zest and then spoon onto cupcakes!


The thickness of the topping can be adjusted by adding more or less icing sugar

For the dearest
