Cupcake ingredients:

3/4 cup cake flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour, plus an additional 2 Tablespoons for blueberries
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 stick of butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temperature

I love lemon. I love blueberries. This recipe is a match made in heaven. The key is using real lemons and blueberries in season.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a cookie sheet, place blueberries in the freezer and partially freeze. This will help all of the blueberries from sinking to the bottom. Line cupcake pans with liners. In a bowl, combine and whisk flours, salt and baking powder. In a mixer, combine butter and sugar. Add one egg at a time and combine. Add lemon zest and juice. Add 1/2 of flour mixture and then pour in the buttermilk and add the vanilla. Add the rest of the flour and combine. By hand, stir in blueberries. Fill cupcake liners up 2/3 full and bake for 20-24 minutes. This recipe yields 14-16 cupcakes. Cool completely before frosting.
Combine butter and cream cheese. Add lemon zest and beat till combined. Add lemon juice and mix well, once combined, add vanilla. Slowly add in powdered sugar, scrapping down the sides after each addition. Frost or pipe on cooled cupcakes. Garnish with reserved blueberries. Store in refrigerator if not serving immediately.
