Blueberry-Lime Cupcakes

I’ve been scouring the produce section for weeks in search of fresh blueberries and I’ve finally found some! There’s nothing better than fresh blueberries. They’re sweet and refreshing. Now add fresh squeezed lime juice and zest. This may be the best combination yet! A cupcake incorporating two of the best spring/summer ingredients can’t disappoint and let me tell you it didn’t. I still have people raving about this recipe asking when I’ll make more. I’ve turned non-blueberriers into blueberriers just because of this simple cupcake recipe!

Get ready to make the cupcake of the summer!
