Blueberry Cupcakes

The “secret ingredient” in these coconut-infused blueberry cupcakes—mashed potatoes—gives the cake great texture, almost like pound cake. The fluffy frosting is just fun.

The frosting stiffens as it stands, so be sure to put it on the cupcakes right after you make it. 


Yield: 12 cupcakes

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 2 1/4 hours (including cooling time)
