I still have a lot of left over AP flour and white sugar… what does this call for? Cupcakes! This time, the reason for these cupcakes is that it’s my friend Alex’s last day at the internship and I’m gonna miss her – so HEY! Might as well use up more of the All-Purpose Flour and Granulated Sugar I have left. Especially since I neverΒ use it otherwise. Which is good. That’s how I created these Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting.

I can’t just throw it out though so making it for others, who don’t care as much for healthy eating, is a good way to go. I’d love to influence my friends to go ahead with healthy eating but priorities first – there’s gotta be ways to get rid of all of the products I personally won’t use anymore. So here’s another way πŸ™‚ Making regular ol’ cupcakes! Woohooo!

These blueberry lemon cupcakes feel light and summery. I tried hard not to make the texture feel like a muffin but rather a cupcake and I succeeded. I was very tempted to put in whole wheat flour in the mix but I had to resist cause I knew otherwise the texture would turn out more muffin-y. Plus, I really wanna use up all of that darn all-purpose flour, haha. Everyone deserves a cheat day though, so indulge πŸ™‚ Not like these are super fattening anyway! Mmmm I loved these lemon cupcakes with blueberries <3

  1. YUM! I haven’t had a lemon blueberry cupcake in forever, totally craving one now! Cheat day’s are the best πŸ™‚

  2. Your so funny! Like you I try to use up ingredients on hand that is not so healthy and I give them away to the not so healthy people. Last night I cleaned out my pantry and brought in all the things I shouldn’t eat so everyone else can! You get on those urges to buy bad things, then I end up giving it away out of guilt! Funny how we work that way!

    Your Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes look delish!!! And you certainly did make them a little bit more healthy!

    • Haha right? It’s us being sneaky! I’ll have a bunch more of these “cheat day” recipes to post in the near future before I can say I’m all out though. When I started baking in the beginning of the year I just went and bought a bunch of stuff to have it in the pantry; didn’t even think that it’s not healthy and there area alternatives. That’s what I get for acting on impulse, haha.

  3. YUM!!!! they look amaaazing, lady. I may make these for a party I have to go to on Saturday!

  4. Lemon and blueberry is such a great flavor combo. My favorite part about the recipe though? You included the icing. Nom.

  5. Haha I gave my mom a few things when I cleaned out my pantry a few months back but I did throw away a bunch of stuff too!

  6. These look perfect for summer Kammie- I am suddenly very hungry…

  7. Everyone deserves indulgences πŸ™‚

  8. Love lemon and blueberry and these look amazing!!
