Açaí and müesli cupcakes

açai and muesli cupcakes

Oh guys, I’m so sorry for the long silence! I’ve just started a new job as an international channel editor and I’m having trouble adjusting (specially because I still work as an interior designer!). But hopefully I’ll be back on track soon.

These cupcakes are another recipe from the lovely book Making Cupcakes with Lola. And they’re healthy (or kind of) because they’re made with açaí berries – a superfood rich in antioxidants. On top goes a delicious cream cheese frosting and a sprinkle of müesli (another healthy food). So you can ease your mind and think that these cupcakes are not only delicious but good for you too ;)

In the bowl of a stand mixer cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add lemon juice and beat again. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in ⅓ of the dry ingredients, then half of the single cream. Repeat until all dry ingredients are incorporated. Add açaí berry pulp.
