These Blueberry Filled Cupcakes come together in no time with a little help from store-bought blueberry pie filling.
I love making fun desserts that seem impressive... especially when they're actually pretty simple. There's something about filled cupcakes that seem so fancy, right? But these are a cinch to make using store-bought blueberry pie filling. I'm not above semi-homemade hacks! The result is a tasty cupcake that the whole family will love!
- all- purpose flour
- baking powder
- baking soda
- granulated sugar
- vanilla extract
- powder sugar
- heavy whipping cream
- canned blueberry pie filling
- Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
- Beat the butter until creamy, then mix with sugar and vanilla and beat again.
- Add eggs and egg whites one at a time to the butter mixture.
- Alternate adding the dry ingredients and buttermilk.
- Scoop the batter into greased muffin tins (or use paper liners).
- Bake at 350-F.
- Remove from oven and cool.
How to Fill Cupcakes
- Once the cupcakes are cooled, use a small smoon or cupcake scoop to make a hole in the top of the cupcakes.
- Fill the whole with blueberry pie filling.
Butter Cream Frosting
- Cream the butter and confectioner's sugar.
- Beat in the vanilla extract and a little bit of heavy cream.
- Once the frosting is creamy but stiff, transfer to a piping bag to decorate.
How simple is that? They're so impressive looking (and tasting) - yet really so simple to make!

I love that you baked the cupcakes from scratch and didn't use a cake mix. They taste so much better homemade rather than the quick way, at least I think so! Thanks for linking up with Delicious Dishes Link Party!
