These wonderful orange berries are also known as cloudberries or bakeapples, and are a staple of the Inupiaq Eskimos of the North Slope of Alaska. Serve with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream.
Salmonberries grow wild along the west coast of North America from northern California to Alaska. Raspberries are from the same family and would make a good substitute if you cannot find salmonberries.
For cupcakes: line 24 muffin cups with paper liners; fill 2/3 full with cake mixture. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, about 19 minutes. While still warm, poke holes into top of each cupcake with a fork; spoon salmonberry mixture over each cupcake.
For a sweeter, drier cake omit the topping. The topping is very tart. You can add whole salmonberries for embellishment.
