Method

Cupcake

Initially the plan was just to add blueberry juice but then i decided to add blueberries too. 

  • Preheat the oven to about 290 degrees celsius and line the cupcake tray with cupcake liners
  • Cream the butter and sugar with an electric blender. 
  • Beat the egg white until fluffy. Add the egg white to the butter- sugar mix. 
  • Add the baking powder, vanilla essence and beat. 
  • Add the flour and egg yolk and beat with an electric blender. 
  • Add the buttermilk to the batter. 
  • Add the blueberry juice and the blueberries to the batter and beat with an electric blender.  (I did not fold the blueberries in the batter as i wanted the blueberry bits in the cupcake not whole blueberries). 
  • Fill the batter to 3/4th of the cupcake liner.
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Check at about 18 minutes to see if they are baked.
