Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, stir together all of the wet ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the wet into the dry and stir to combine. Scoop the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 20-24 minutes or until the tops of the cupcakes spring back when touched. Remove from the oven. Let cool in the muffin tin for 5 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
  5. Once the muffins have cooled completely, add the frosting ingredients, except the raspberries to a blender. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Pour into a bowl and fold in the raspberries. Frost each cupcake and serve.
