Blackberry Vanilla Cupcakes

  
Growing up, I lived next to a wooded vacant lot.
Wild blackberry bushes grew there and I would pick blackberries with my brothers.
Sometimes we had so many that my mom would make cobbler or jam with them.

When I spied some fresh blackberries in the store recently,
it brought back all those great memories and I decided to make a new recipe.
Blackberry Vanilla Cupcakes!


You make seedless blackberry puree by processing the berries in your blender,
then straining the puree through a fine mesh sieve.

The puree makes the cake batter a very deep blue color,
while the buttercream frosting becomes a beautiful pinkish purple.
Keep this in mind if you like natural food coloring alternatives!
