I chose this recipe because it seemed easy, called for the amount of blueberries I have and I had all the ingredients.
That was it, I was sold.
I experimented and sprinkled some sugar on top of some of the cupcakes before they went in the oven and I really liked the way they came out.
They looked so pretty.
