Black Forest Cupcakes

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.

Cherry filling:
  •        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)

  1.  Heat cherries sugar and most of the water on medium heat until saucy and soft
  2. Add tapioca stirring continuously until thicken, let cool and side aside to fill cupcakes.
