Black Forest Cupcakes

Recipe by Yasmin

This is a lovely little treat that is extremely simple to prepare but looks really intricate in detail. It was made specifically for a birthday; however, it can be made for high tea, dessert, or any other occasion. I really enjoyed making this and I'm sure you will too!

For cupcakes:

  • 2 tblsp butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp instant coffee, in 1 tblsp boiling water
  • 2 tblsp cocoa
For filling:
  • 300ml thickened cream, whipped
For icing:
  • Homemade chocolate gnash or bought chocolate frosting

Prepare several 3x4 cupcake trays by placing cupcake cases in each section. Lightly spray each case with canola oil spray. 

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl with electric beaters. Place spoonfuls of mixture into cupcake  cases. Cook for 15 mins at 180'C fan forced or until inserted skewer comes out clean.

When cool, use a knife to cut a hole out of each cup cake with the removed cake to become lids. Spoon whipped cream into each cupcake. Ice cupcake lids with chocolate frosting and place on top of the cream filled cupcake. To complete the cupcake, add a cherry on top.
