These Gluten-Free Blueberry Lemon Poundcake Cupcakes are to die for. I topped them with my Amazing Lemon Cream Cheese Icing. But this time I added a little lemon zest and to give it a delicious zing to go along with the with the blueberries in the cupcake.
They are so delicious I could eat all of them. But they are so thick, rich and heavy that it’s impossible to eat all of them in one sitting. Trust me, I tried. The only thing stopping me is that my stomach won’t hold them all.
My toddler devours them, and normally she only wants everything chocolate.

In a bowl add the eggs, oil, yogurt and milk. Using a hand mixer beat until fully combined.
Add the gluten-free cake mix to the wet mixture and beat on low to medium speed for about 2 minutes. Fold in the blueberries by hand, taking care not to break them up.
With an ice cream scooper, fill cupcake liners approximately 2/3 full and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cool completely at room temperature before icing. For ultimate results refrigerate cupcakes overnight before icing.
