I’m lucky that some of my closest friends are fellow food bloggers here in the Salt Lake City area. We get together not only to enjoy food, talk shop and swap ideas, but we’ve become like a little family. This last weekend we came together to celebrate the upcoming arrival of the newest member of the group, with a baby shower honoring Becky of The Vintage Mixer.
Of course, with a potluck brunch provided by food bloggers, you know the food is going to be good. And it was. I am spoiled rotten.
No baby shower is complete without cupcakes, am I right? Since it was a brunch I almost opted for muffins instead, until I realized I could put the two together.
Muffin + frosting = muffin cupcake.
All I did was take my favorite blueberry muffin recipe and add a swirl of cream cheese frosting. It’s a fun twist, especially for something like a shower party. Sometimes you don’t want simple muffins or decadent cupcakes, but something in between.
Of course this concept works for probably any muffin, but I loved these blueberry muffin cupcakes. There’s brown butter, fresh oozing blueberries and a rich cream cheese icing. What’s not to love?
I’m hoping I can think of an excuse to make them again soon.
