blueberry and avocado cupcakes

This week's recipe is a cupcake- a cupcake with a hidden surprise. BLUEBERRIES. (and avocado in the topping) So if you like to satiate your appetite with sweet fruitiness, this one's for you.

(My recipe makes 6 mini ones so you can always modify yours. The recipe for the buttercream was taken from How Sweet It Is )

You will need...
  • 80g butter
  • 80g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 90g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • small handful of blueberries
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 cups (I think that's about 350g icing sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
What to do...
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  • Beat in the egg and then fold in the flour
  • scoop a spoonful of mixture into the cake case and then place a blueberry or two in the center. Cover with more mixture
  • Repeat with the rest of the cases and then bake for about 15 minutes.
  • For the topping, cream the butter and avocado in a mixer until smooth then pour in the sugar and mix again.
  • fill a piping bag (or whatever you use) with the butter cream and squeeze on to the top of the cakes. 
  • Save until the morning or eat and enjoy straight away :-)
