Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!

 

Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.

 

I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?

Cherry Chocolate Cupcakes

A delicious and craving filling cupcake to satisfy those chocolate cake needs.

A chocolate cupcake, with a sour cherry centre, topped with creamy vanilla buttercream.


Makes 12 Cupcakes

10 Minutes Preparation Time

20 Minutes Baking Time


INGREDIENTS

CAKES

160g Butter

160g Caster Sugar

3 Large Eggs

40g Cocoa Powder

Splash of Boiling Water

120g Self Raising Flour

1tsp Baking Powder


12 tsp Cherry Conserve

2tbs Chopped dried cherries


ICING

250g Icing Sugar

125g Butter

1tsp Vanilla

A few drops of red colouring


METHOD

- Preheat the oven to 160c.

- In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and caster sugar until smooth. You can use an electric whisk too.

- Now, add the eggs one at a time.

- Combine the boiling water and cocoa powder together and stir.

- Add the chocolate mix to the butter and egg mix.

- Now add the flour and baking powder and stir/whisk until well combined.

- Spoon into cupcake moulds or straight into a greased cupcake tin.

- Bake for 20 minutes then remove to cool.

- Once cool, cut out the centre and spoon in a teaspoon of cherry conserve. Place the cake you cut out back onto the cherry filling.

- Whisk together the butter and icing sugar and add the vanilla. Mix or beat until lovely and smooth. You can add colouring at this point but it doesn't add to the flavour.

- Pipe the icing onto the cakes starting from the outside, spiralling into the centre.

- Sprinkle chopped cherries onto the cakes.

- ENJOY!
