Ingredients

  • 1 8oz package House-Autry Buttermilk Biscuit Mix
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/3 cup Buttermilk
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp Red Food Coloring
  • 1/4 tsp White Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 8 oz Neufchatel cheese (or Cream Cheese) – softened
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbsp. Buttermilk
  • For decoration: 1 cup Blueberries

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Add baking cups to 12-cup muffin tin. Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and buttermilk; mix well. In separate bowl, combine the cocoa, baking soda and House-Autry Buttermilk Biscuit Mix. In batches, incorporate the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients, stirring to combine. Add red food coloring, vinegar and 1/2 tsp vanilla; mix well. Using 1/4 cup measure, add the cake batter to prepared muffin tins. Fill each cupcake only 1/2 full as the mixture will rise during baking. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center of the layers comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a baking rack. Cool completely before frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
In mixer, combine the softened Neufchatel cheese (or cream cheese) and powdered sugar at low speed until well blended. Scrape down sides and increase speed to high; mix until fluffy. Reduce speed back to low and add vanilla extract. Thin with Buttermilk, if necessary. Frost your cupcakes, top with blueberries and enjoy!
