With the first official day of summer being in June (the 21st to be exact!), Parrish and I decided to make this month’s series all about summer desserts! Seems fitting, right?! I don’t think anything screams summer more than bursting fresh ripe berries.

 I love pretty much all berries, and I saw these gorgeous blackberries on sale at the grocery store so I just had to run home with them! Enough rambling, on to the recipe! The recipe for the cupcakes is adapted from Cooking Classy.

Ingredients
Angel Food Cupcakes
  • ¾ cup + 2 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ cup all purpose flour, sifted
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 6 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 2½ Tablespoon warm water
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoon cream of tartar
Blackberry Frosting
  • 2½ Tablespoon all purpose flour
  • ½ Cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
  • ½ Cup unsalted butter, room temp
  • ½ Cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ Cup blackberries
  • blackberries for garnish, optional
Instructions
Angel Food Cupcakes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake tin with paper liners. Set aside.
  2. In a food processor, place the sugar and pulse until super fine, 2 minutes. Sift half of the sugar with the flour and salt, set aside.
  3. In a large bowl with hand mixer or stand mixer, place the egg whites, add in the water, vanilla and cream of tartar. Mix until fully combined. Gradually add in the remaining sugar until incorporated. place mixer on medium speed until egg whites form medium peaks.
  4. Start to add in the flour mixture a little at a time by sifting it onto the surface of the egg mixture and folding it in in very small batches.
  5. Fill the cupcake liners almost all the way to the top. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes in the tin, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Blackberry Frosting
  1. Place blackberries into a blender and blend until they form juice. Strain the juice through a fine mesh colander and discard the seeds. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, whisk the flour into the milk and cook over medium heat, whisking continuously until thick. Remove from heat, stir in the vanilla and let cool to room temp.
  3. With a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and there is no graininess left. Add in the cooled milk mixture and beat it on high speed until a whipped cream consistency. This can take a while, do not give up! Well worth the effort. Add in the blackberry juice and mix to combine. Frost cupcakes, garnish with blackberries if desired and enjoy! Any left over cupcakes should be refrigerated.

    This frosting looks amazing BUT I am a nursing mom and my baby is very allergic to dairy. Do you know if it would work with coconut oil/margarine(if I have too) and soy/almond milk?

      It would most definitely work with the different milks. I would suggest margarine instead of the coconut oil, but I’m not 100% sure on that.

        Thank you so much. I am pleased to report I used land o lakes margarine (80%oil content) and vanilla soy milk…I used raspberries because that’s what I had. It came out AMAZING!
