Shopping List

  • 150g caster sugar.
  • 50g cocoa powder.
  • 50g softened unsalted butter.
  • 175ml whole milk.
  • 1 egg.

Preparation Time:- 15 minutes Cooking Time:- 20 minutes

These heavenly bites of indulgence are fabulously classic! (Just make sure you aren’t on a diet!) To me, a cherry on top is the perfect symbolism of a true cupcake. Add in the amount of chocolate and you have gorgeousness in a pretty case.


Put the flour, sugar, butter and cocoa powder in your mixing bowl and start to mix on a low speed.


In a jug, mix together the milk, egg and flavouring. Add this to your dry ingredients and mix together thoroughly.


Add in the cherries and mix them in by hand with a spatula. Then spoon this mixture into twelve cupcake cases inside a deep tin. Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 160°

When your cupcakes are cooling, you can get on with the frosting. You will need;

200g butter.

450g icing sugar.

20g cocoa powder.

300g chocolate. (Melted and cooled)

1/2tsp cherry flavouring.

12 glace cherries for topping.

Mix together the butter and the icing sugar and melt the chocolate. Once the chocolate has cooled slightly, add it to the icing sugar and butter along with the flavouring. Mix this together for 5-7 minutes until nice and creamy. This can then be put in a piping bag with your choice of nozzle and you can decorate your cupcakes.
