Greek Yogurt Cupcakes Blackberry Frosting

Greek Yogurt Cupcakes Blackberry Frosting

Greek Yogurt Cupcakes Blackberry Frosting

I pumped 1 whole cup of Greek yogurt into these cupcakes and they are so fluffy and delicious I can hardly sit still. These cupcakes are just as quick to whip up as boxed cupcakes but they taste so much better!

I’ve spent the past few days developing (eating) and testing this yogurt cupcake recipe. It’s finally ready to be shared with the world. These are going into my cupcake hall of fame; among my top 4 ( ok, you got me. Maybe I only have 4 cupcake recipes posted. Quality over quantity folks) ;).

Now lets talk about the easy and scrumptious blackberry frosting. On second thought, a picture is worth a thousand words. Let your eyes wander back to the top of the screen. Oh. Yeah ;).

I pumped these cupcakes with a full cup of Greek Yogurt and are just so fluffy I can hardly sit still. These are going into my cupcake hall of fame. The blackberry frosting is easy and scrumptious! You can also use raspberries. P.S. these refrigerate really well and stay fluffy even right out of the fridge.

Ingredients For Greek Yogurt Cupcakes Blackberry Frosting

Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 1 2/3 cups cake flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter room temp (cut into 6-8 pieces)
  • 1 large egg room temp
  • 1 large egg white room temp
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plain Greek Yogurt I used the regular, full fat version

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter soft at room temp
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/8 tsp fine sea salt
  • 8 oz 1 stick cream cheese, softened to room temp and cut into 8 pieces
  • 1/2 cup about 15 Blackberries to puree + 12 blackberries for garnish

Instructions For Greek Yogurt Cupcakes Blackberry Frosting

How to make the Cupcakes:

    1. Line a 12-count cupcake pan with paper liners. Preheat Oven to 350˚F.
    2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk together your dry ingredients: 1 2/3 cups cake flour, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt until well combined. Add in 6 Tbsp softened butter and with your wire whisk on med/low speed, mix for about 3-4 min or until fine crumbs form.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk together your wet ingredients until combined: 1 egg, 1 large egg white, 1 cup plain greek yogurt and 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk together on med speed until smooth (2 min). The batter will be thick and still have tiny lumps.
  1. Fill each paper liner a little more than 1/2 full if you want 15 regular cupcakes. Fill 2/3 full if you want 12 cupcakes with muffin tops like what you see in the pictures. Bake at 350˚F for 18-20 minutes. When finished, a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcake should come out clean. Remove cupcakes to a wire rack and let cool to room temp.

How to Make Frosting:

  1. Puree blackberries in a small food processor, or Immersion Hand Blender, then strain them through a fine mesh strainer, pushing them through with a spatula until all you have left in the strainer is seeds. Discard seeds and set the puree aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, mix the 1 stick of softened butter with 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and salt on low speed or until combined, scraping as necessary ~ 2 min. Don’t start on high speed or you will be surrounded in a cloud of powdered sugar (lessons learned). It may seem like it won’t come together at first, but it will. Give it a little time ;). Once the mixture is combined, increase speed to medium-high and beat until the cream is pale and fluffy (2-3 min).
  3. Add cream cheese 1-piece at a time and mix until combined. Once all of the cream cheese is mixed in, continue to beat 2 more minutes until fluffy, scraping down the bowl as necessary. You need your frosting to be super smooth without any globs of cream cheese or they will get stuck in the piping star, so if you see globs, keep mixing.
  4. Pour blackberry puree over frosting and continue mixing until well incorporated. Refrigerate frosting 10 minutes before piping it onto the cupcakes.

How to Decorate the Blackberry Cupcakes:

  1. Once your cupcakes are cooled to room temp, you can decorate them. I used a WILTON 2D (closed-star) frosting tip with a piping bag to frost the tops working from the outside in and up. There’s enough frosting to be generous with each cupcake. You’re welcome ;). Top with a fresh blackberry if desired and serve.

Recipe Notes

Health note: I recently discovered that canned food is the largest source of BPA in peoples diets which is a big no-no for pregnancy and children so I was forced to cook my own beans (since BPA free cans are limited in selection where I shop). I cooked 1 lb of each kind of bean and Therefore, I’m planning to freeze some for 2 more future batches of chili, or borscht, or anything else that calls for beans. I was able to make the entire chili with just 1 canned item which was lined with a BPA free lining. Yes!
