How to Make Blackberry Bourbon Cupcakes



Preheat the oven up to 475 F. Sift cake flour, baking powder and salt together and set them aside. Mix butter and sugar for 2-3 minutes with the help of a mixer until it becomes fluffy and smooth. Whisk milk and egg whites in a bowl and set aside. Then gradually mix butter-sugar mixture and add 1/3 of dry sifted ingredients. Then slowly add the fairly mixed egg-milk mixture in 2 to 3 batches. Add remaining dry ingredients to the mixture and combine them. Then fold in part of blackberry glaze, and you can leave behind patches of blackberry. Fill the cupcake liner half and bake it for 15-20 minutes. Insert a toothpick and check if it’s clean. Remove them from the oven and let them cool.


Blackberry Glaze/Puree


Mix sugar, blackberries, lemon juice, and zest in a saucepan. Cook the sauce until blackberries start to burst and let it cool. Press mixture through the strainer with a spatula to remove seeds.


Vanilla Bean Frosting


At medium heat, combine milk and flour in a saucepan. Stir the sauce until it becomes thick like paste when you can see pan bottom. Remove it from heat and let it cool. Mix cream butter and vanilla sugar 2-3 minutes to make it creamed and fluffy. Add flour mixture and mix it at high speed to mix thoroughly. Then add bourbon/whiskey and vanilla extract in it — pipe frosting on blackberry cupcakes with blackberry puree and whole blackberry.
