What is a Blueberry Cupcake ?

​​Cupcakes are generally a basic portioned cake made with flour, sugar, butter, eggs and a leavener. The recipe for a muffin was first discovered in a 19th century American cookbook, but the term cupcake essentially came into use as recently as the last decade of the 20th century. Fresh Blueberries inside a muffin provide it with the perfect amount of moisture and sweetness, plus the tangy cream cheese frosting helps to balance out the flavour.
