These cupcakes contain whole cane sugar, yogurt and lemon peel, with frozen blueberries and strawberries for interest, and a cream cheese-blueberry frosting.

  • Servings: 12


3¼ cups All-purpose Flour
1¼ cups Sucanat Brand Whole Cane Sugar
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Coarse Salt
¼ tsp Baking Soda
6 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, melted
¼ cup Coconut Oil
2 Large Eggs
1 cup Yogurt
1 cup Whole Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tsp Grated Lemon Peel
1¼ cups Fresh Blueberries & Chopped Strawberries, frozen for 4 hours
Blueberry Frosting:
4 oz Cream Cheese
1 cup Powdered Sugar
Mashed Blueberries, to taste
Additional Fresh Blueberries & Strawberries, for garnish


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two 12 cup muffin pans with paper liners.

Sift flour into a large bowl. Mix in Sucanat, baking powder, soda and salt.

Whisk melted butter and oil in a medium bowl. Add eggs and whisk to blend. Whisk in yogurt, milk, vanilla extract and lemon peel. Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients, then stir just to blend. Fold in frozen berries. Divide batter among liners. Bake cupcakes until a tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Process all frosting ingredients in food processor or blender. After cupcakes are cooled, squeeze a dollop of frosting on top of cupcake. Place additional fresh berries in frosting to garnish.
