For the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 200°C (180° fan) 400°F gas 6. Place paper cases in a 12-hole bun tin.
Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar.
Whisk together the eggs and oil in a separate bowl until frothy, then slowly whisk in the milk.
Stir into the dry ingredients until just blended. Gently stir in the blueberries.
Spoon into the paper cases and bake for 20 minutes until risen and springy to the touch. Cool in the tins for 5 minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.

Decorate with blueberries and scatter over the pistachios.
