    What is with blueberries? Blueberries are weird, we can all agree on that, right?

    Blueberries seem harmless, sure. Just little berries that are blue. They taste great and are wonderful for dumping into various treats for the “healthy!!!!” factor.

    But here’s my problem with them. Or rather, here’s the problem I had with them in this particular cupcake recipe.

    Let me set the scene: imagine a robot in the front of the stove, preparing a blueberry fruit reduction.

    “La la la,” the robot sings tunelessly to itself. “This blueberry reduction is a beautiful deep purple color!”

    The robot is right. The blueberry reduction IS a pretty purple! “THIS WILL BE AMAZING IN MY CUPCAKE BATTER!”

    So the robot folds the blueberry reduction into the cupcake batter, turning it an interesting dark blue.

    “Okay, I can work with is, this is kind of cool, maaaaaaaaaybe,” shrugs the robot, eyeing the batter warily.

    The cupcakes go in the oven. The cupcakes come out of the oven. The cupcakes are green.

    “*^%%$0101011101101000011%^#%$#0000101110100001*^$^#$000000110100101110 01100100000&^&&$(&01101000011000010111000%*%^$^&%$*00111000001100101011 01110011010(&*^$%#010110111001100111!!!!!!!!!” the robot yelled.

    (End scene.)

    In the end, the cupcakes tasted amazing and the brown sugar buttercream pairs perfectly with the blueberries. Even if the purple-to blue-to green infuriated and confused said robot (SPOILER ALERT: it was me). If you make these cupcakes, let me know what colors you came up with! Let’s try for orange!

    1. I don’t know about you but I like the color of these cupcakes! It makes them super unique and you can tell just by looking at them that they will be packed with flavor. Kind of like those little “fruit” gummies… they come in some crazy colors but they are all absolutely delicious :)

      Just made these. They look and taste fabulous. I tried adding a little bit of red food coloring to see if they will be less green, but they are still a little green. Also, I believe you are missing 3+ tablespoons of milk or half and half in the frosting recipe. As written, frosting would be much too thick. Very yummy. Even my kids who don’t like blueberries gobbled them down!

      Looks great. I am confused about something though. In step 4 it says to add the blueberry reduction and whole blueberries but I don’t see anywhere how much extra blueberries to use.

      Did anyone mention baking soda = green blueberries? Reduce the soda and/or up the acid to cancel to soda out. Then you’ll have blue blueberry cupcakes =-D
