Blueberry & Lemon Cakes

More cupcakes today! This seems to be turning into a baking blog…. :) I tried out the blueberry and lemon cupcakes from my much favoured copy of Cupcakes by Susannah Blake this afternoon. The sponge has polenta included in it, along with lemon zest & juice and fresh blueberries. I didn’t really like the extra grittiness that the polenta gave, so next time I’d just make a lemon sponge to add the blueberries to. I used mascarpone instead of creme fraiche to make the lemon frosting, and then topped with fresh blueberries and strips of lemon peel. Will definitely give them another go later in the summer.
