Although we make Banana and Blueberry Fairy Cakes often, we can only make them when we have bananas going past their best. In between, we like to make simple blueberry cakes as a delicious treat whenever we feel like it.

What do you need for these little blueberry cupcakes?

For these blueberry fairy cakes you just need typical cake ingredients plus fresh blueberries although you could try using frozen blueberries instead. We also have these cakes straight from the oven without decorating them but you could dust them with icing sugar to make them a little bit more fancy. You could also top them with a simple cream cheese frosting too but we just love them plain.

A lot of people like lemon blueberry cakes and if you wanted to have a lemon flavour simply switch the vanille extract for lemon juice or a little lemon zest.
