After sipping on both Tomato Kick and Berry Garden, I tossed around ideas of both savory dishes and sweet treats. What to make? In the end, I decided to go with a cupcake that has summer written all over it.

Berries are a quintessential fruit this time of year and when combined into a cupcake with a mascarpone frosting, it screams red, white & blue! Perfect as a beautiful addition to any Fourth of July celebration, don’t you think?

Naked Berry Cupcakes with Sweet Mascarpone Frosting

Yield: 20 cupcakes

Ingredients

    For the Cupcakes:
  • 2-3/4 cups cake flour
  • 2 c granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c dry buttermilk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 c water
  • 1/4 c Naked Juice Berry Garden
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/4 c vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • For the Frosting:
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 (8 oz) containers mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 c Confectioners' sugar

Instructions

For the Cupcakes:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cupcake tins with liners and spray each one with a small amount of non-stick spray. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, dry buttermilk, baking powder and soda; set aside. In a larger bowl, whisk together the water and Naked Juice Berry Garden. Then add the egg whites, oil and vanilla extract, mixing until smooth. Using a hand mixer, add the dry ingredients a little at a time, beating until just incorporated. Add batter to each cupcake liner, filling 2/3 full.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting:

While the cupcakes are cooling, make the frosting. Beat the butter on high speed, until it is light and fluffy. Scrape and repeat to make sure all the butter is beaten. Add the mascarpone and beat on medium speed, until just blended. Sift the Confectioners' sugar over the butter and mascarpone mixture and quickly beat on medium speed, until just smooth. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour before using.
