|Chocolate cupcake, Cherry filling, Vanilla Buttercream Icing|
The other day a coworker of mine did something nice for me. I wanted to do something as a thank you in return. But what? After much deliberation and careful consideration I have decided that cupcakes are the perfect thank you present.
I mean honestly, who doesn’t love a cupcake or two as a quick little thank you?
I have definitely attempted black forest cupcakes in the past unsuccessfully. They were dry and muffin like with a gooey jello-like filling, gross. After making a few alterations to the recipe, these little guys turned out awesome.
- 1.5 to 2 cups of fresh cherries pitted and diced
- 2 tbsp sugar
- ¼ of water
- 1 to 2 tbs tapioca flour (mixed with some of the water before adding)
- Heat cherries sugar and most of the water on medium heat until saucy and soft
- Add tapioca stirring continuously until thicken, let cool and side aside to fill cupcakes.
