Blueberry Cupcakes

Noobcook had her first successful bake, Blueberry Muffin and it didn't look like it was her first at all. Bluff! ;P Blueberries are very expensive here. I never thought I would try them till I saw a local supermarket was having them for sale, organic some more and it was a mere S$2.30 a punnet!! I grabbed 3 and went back to check out Noobcook's recipe. She's using imperial measurement whilst I'm more comfortable with metric measurement and I was too lazy to do the conversion. I had to abandon the idea of using her recipe and used one of the regular cupcake recipe I had instead. The next time blueberries are on sale again, I shan't be lazy and do the conversion because her muffins look too darn good! Here's my recipe if you prefer meteric measurement and especially blueberries. They are yummy! Ingredients:
  • 220g Butter, soften
  • 200g Caster Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 220g Self Rasing Flour
  • 2 punnet Blueberries
How to do it:
  1. Cream butter and suger till light and fluffy.
  2. Add one egg at a time and continue beating.
  3. Add in flour and beat well till mixture is smooth and pale.
  4. Fold in the blueberries till combined.
  5. Spoon batter into muffin cup.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes in preheat oven at 170C.
  7. Cool on rack.


  1. never bluff you, the previous bakes are inedible hehe ;p I think yours look better and I like the toothpick bluberry garnishing on top =p ok, I think I shall try your recipe next time, it looks simpler ... but blueberries now cost $5++ -_-

  2. Wow... looks yummy!!

    Can I use super fine flour instead of self raising flour?

    I'm just a beginner and no idea when & what to use self raising flour and the normal flour for baking cakes :P

  3. yoo... so tempting la...
    i forgo blueberry n bought strawberry for my tarts.. lol

    and bought dried cranberry for cranberry shortcake.. yum

  4. Looks yummy=) Where got sell so cheap blueberries?

  5. I would luv if you cooked for me but I know that is not possible so I'll just have to follow your recipes Yum Yum!
    Just visit my blog too there may be some things of interest too there.

  6. Hi, a friend gave me the link to your blog and I must say, WOW! It definitely looks like you have a keen interest and natural talent for cooking.

    Hope you dont mind me asking some questions, I really hope to get your opinion. I have never really been good at chinese dishes, and would like to start cooking them regularly for my husband. I realised that I need to get a wok (I've never had one, only used skillets all my life!) in order to stir-fry properly, as well as to be able to steam whole fish n the chinese style.

    Can you give me some tips on choosing one? I dont like to stir-fry with stainless steel cause they stick too much, and I heard that teflon-coated woks arent good for steaming, is this true? Whats a good alternative without breaking the bank (Can I get a good wok for less than $80?)?

    Can you also share some of your trusty kitchen gadgets? I am curious to know what wok you use too, hope you dont mind. If you dont mind replying me, could you email me at Thanks in any case. :)

  7. These are the absolute best blueberry muffins that I have ever made in my life! My kids are singing your praises from Denver, Colorado.

    Thank you!

  8. hi, just visited ur fabulous site. the blueberry muffins looks so yummy. hope to try it soon when i can some blueberries.

  9. Very pretty! And nice garnish with the blueberry-stick ;) It's true, blueberries in Singapore are so expensive, I'm glad you got some good bargains. Btw, I have a blueberry muffin recipe here, it's always worked very well for me. I use metric measurements in my baking so you might want to see if there's recipe you might want to try :)

  10. I'm really impressive with your yummy blueberry cupcake. The look & the texture of the piece of cake you're holding really tempting. I must really go look out if there's any fresh blueberry on sales. A real motivation for me to go try. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I must try these! ... im not much of a cook tho. Hey, i simply love ur blog, esp the food. Can I link you? :-)

  12. those cupckaes are so adorable! i love the blueberries sticking out. that's so creative and modern.

  13. hehehe i love your lil blueberry sate up there ^_^

  14. Hi,

    I just voted for your excellent blog for Bloggers Choice Awards.

    Could you please return the favor at:



  15. Noobcook,
    hehe ... seriously your bake doesn't look like it's your first successful one. :)

    Wonderful Life,
    You can but you have to add 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder to it.
    Use low gulten flour for cakes and cookies and High gulten flour for bread. But you have to add baking powder or baking soda to it. Only self raising flour has baking powder in it so you dont have to add in anymore. :)

    Strawberries, I like too!

    Yeah! That's why I bought so much. :P Now it's back to $5++

    Haha ... I also wish for others to cook for me.

    Thanks for the compliment.
    I will email you. :)

    Denver Catering,
    Thank you and your kids too.

    Hope you will like them too.

    Yeah! Your bakes are absolutely yummy!

    Thank you. I think you can use dried ones too. Just soak them in hot water for a minute and dry them. That's how my friend used dried ones. :)

    One Other,
    Thanks. Sure you can.

    ;) thank you!

    Mochachocolata Rita,
    Thanks! ;) Can pick my teeth after eating. :P haha ...

    Thanks. Returned the favour.

  16. I thought this was a muffin......

  17. I've tried the recipe and succeeded in the first attempt! But I only used 1 punnet and used the balance batter with chopped macadamia nuts and choc chips.

    Most who tried said they're gd but said the blueberry ver caused the cake to be oilier.. anything I can do to make it less oily? The other 2 ver are ok. :)

  18. I tried my first attempt for this recipe and it worked much better than the other one i got from another blog!

    But I only used 1 punnet and used chopped macadamia nuts and choc chips for the rest of the batter.

    Most of the pp who tried said they're gd but they also said the blueberry cupcakes are more oily than the other 2 ver. Is there anything I can do to reduce the oiliness? The other 2 ver are just right. Thanks!
