Blackberry Cupcakes

The other day my grandmother turned 90 (!) and threw a large party for friends, family and neighbours who live nearby. Turns out grandma is quite the popular one, over 70 people turned up to the party!

Luckily they had hired a catering firm to take care of all the food, and I have to say they were really great. I was happily surprised by the veggie dishes they served, and it made me fantasize about what I would serve if I ran a catering firm. One of the sweets would definitely be these cute little cupcakes – perfect for weddings and birthday parties!

  2. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Whisk the wet ingredients (oil, soy milk, vanilla, vinegar) in a large bowl, add the dry mixture and stir to combine (be careful not to over mix). If you want you can even add some blackberries to the muffin mixture.
  4. Pour the batter in the muffin tins and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Let cool completely. In the meantime, prepare the frosting.
Frosting
  1. Mash blackberries and press through a sieve so you get 1 tbsp of juice.
  2. Mix butter and icing sugar until fluffy with an electric mixer. Add Sour Supreme and continue mixing. Add the juice and mix to a smooth mixture. Add more icing sugar if the mixture is too runny. Decorate on top of cupcakes.
