Mixing fruit and baked goods is one of the deadliest combinations, and the Roasted Blueberry Cupcake featured on the 'How Sweet It Is' blog is a perfect example. While I've had little experience roasting fruit, this recipe offers a delicious and seemingly simple set of directions to follow.
The Roasted Blueberry Cupcake combines some of my favorite flavors, including the sweetness of this seasonal berry, vanilla and rich, chocolate fudge. After roasting blueberries on the stovetop to the point of explosion, they are mixed in with the vanilla batter. The result is a violet-hued cupcake. Next, the Roasted Blueberry Cupcake is topped with fluffy chocolate fudge icing. This recipe is certainly unique, and the roasted fruit component is both highly unusual and appealing.
Implications - Businesses that offer their clients unique and fresh ways to enjoy their favorite products will appeal to a wide audience. Consumers will likely invest in products that provide them with a new experience that complements their personal preferences.
