Directions

Special equipment: waffle iron

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line cupcake or muffin pans with 24 cupcake liners.

In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the flours, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in the butter and sour cream, and combine until the mixture is coarse and crumbly.

In a pitcher, combine the milk, vanilla extract and eggs, and whisk until combined. Slowly add the ingredients in the pitcher into the butter-flour mixture, mixing until combined.

Fill cupcake liners and bake for 20 minutes, rotating halfway through. Remove from the oven and cool completely before frosting.

Fill the cupcakes with Razzleberry Filling. Top with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting and a waffle piece. Drizzle with maple syrup.

Razzleberry Filling:

Combine the berries, granulated sugar and cornstarch in a small pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat while whisking to break up the fruit. As soon as the mixture begins to simmer, remove from the heat and refrigerate immediately to cool.

Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting:

In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, whip the butter and cream cheese until fully combined. Slowly add in the powdered sugar and heavy whipping cream. Beat until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla extract and stir until incorporated.

Waffles:

Preheat a waffle iron. In a glass bowl, beat the egg until fluffy. Add in the milk, oil and vanilla extract. Slowly add in the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Spray the waffle iron with pan spray, and cook the waffles in batches until golden. When cool, break into squares.
