Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

From the Test Kitchen

For bright, zesty balance to these simple, delicious blueberry cupcakes, we're frosting them with a mixture of smooth mascarpone and tangy lemon curd.

Tips from Home Chefs

Prepare the dry ingredients
1 Prepare the dry ingredients

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 375°F. Wash and dry the blueberries. In a bowl, combine the flour, biscuit mix, baking powder, vanilla powder, and a pinch of salt. Whisk to combine.

2 Prepare the wet ingredients

Working in 30 second increments, melt the butter in a large bowl in the microwave (or melt in a small pot on the stove, then transfer to a large bowl). Add the heavy cream, sour cream, egg, and sugar; whisk to thoroughly combine.

3 Mix the batter

Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients; using a spatula, gently mix until only a few white streaks remain. Gently fold in the blueberries until thoroughly combined.

4 Bake the cupcakes

Lightly grease the rounds of a cupcake tin (or line with cupcake liners). Transfer the batter to the prepared rounds. Bake 16 to 20 minutes, or until the batter is cooked through and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
