    -75g butter
    -245g Sugar
    -2 eggs
    -205g plain flour
    -1 tbsp baking powder
    -Pinch of salt
    -205g milk

    For the blueberry compote:
    -240g frozen or fresh blueberries
    -50g caster Sugar

    For the buttercream:
    -260g icing Sugar
    -90g unsalted butter
    -20ml whole milk
    -Remaining half of your blueberry compote
    -Fresh Blueberries (x36) or silver dragees (optional)


Pre-heat your oven to 170 degrees/Gas mark 3

Start by prepare compote by heating/boiling the blueberries with sugar until a sauce like consistency. Split into two portions and allow to cool.

Now you can move onto your cupcakes - the important part!

Cream the butter in a large bowl until soft. (Use a handheld whisk or an electric whisk), add sugar and whisk until combined and coming away from side of bowl.

In a jug whisk your eggs and slowly add to butter and sugar mix, incorporating fully before adding more
Sieve flour, salt and baking powder together and add and whisk half to wet batter with half of your milk mix until incorporated, then scrape down the sides of your bowl and add the rest of the dry cake mix and milk mix until combined.

Fold in half the cool blueberry compote into cake batter or mix as preferred.

Fill your 12-cupcake cases ¾ of the way and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until cooked.

So now onto the buttercream:

Beat the icing sugar and butter together with an electric whisk until incorporated, but pouring the milk mix slowly to help soften, once the milk has been incorporated, turn the mixer up to a high speed and continue to beat until the mixture is fluffy.

You can add less milk if you think your icing is becoming too runny.

Make a hole in the center of your cooled blueberry cupcakes by using an apple corker or your finger, add a teaspoon of compote.

Pipe or use palette knife to decorate your cupcakes with the white buttercream.

To decorate, add 3 fresh blueberries in the centre of the buttercream or compote which can be further decorated with silver dragees.
