Growing up, one of the cakes that I loved the most was Black Forest cake. I guess I was always tempted by the dark and chocolate cake topped with cream. Plus, Black Forest cake always looks so pretty with so many cherries that I just want to have a bite of the cake, and the cherries!

Now think of the same deliciousness, in the form of cupcakes. That’s exactly what I have for you today: Black Forest cupcakes! I saw this recipe and photos on my contributor’s Facebook page and I just had to ask her to share the Black Forest Cupcakes recipe here with us.

The texture of this cupcake is lighter compared to the regular Black Forest Cake. It’s perfect as an afternoon tea, with a cup of coffee or tea. I especially love the hidden treasure inside the cupcake, which is the cherry pie filling and the fresh cherry. The top is fluffy whipped cream and shredded chocolate. Anyway, each bite is just delightful, and you will just love how it looks. Happy baking!

  1. G’day Bee! LOVE Black forest cake and love your cupcakes, true!
    Sadly, the cherry season is over here, but gives me something next year to look forward to making thanks to you!
    Cheers! Joanne

    Real Black Forest Cake has Kirsch, a German cherry brandy, soaked into the cake.
    That’s missing in this recipe. It makes for a more adult flavor children may not like.
    Still I suppose one could experiment…

    Hi Bee, the cupcakes look so tempting! I’d like to ask if I have leftovers, how can I store them? As I understand the fresh whipped cream and cherries can’t be left long in room temperature in our Malaysian weather, but if I place them in the fridge, the cakes will be hardened… Any advice? Many thanks in advance!

      Serve them as de-constructed cupcakes! Meaning you serve them with the whipped cream, chocolate shavings or sauce and cherries on the side. It’s lots of fun for kids to put it together themselves.That way you can reserve the rest of the cakes and just pull out what you need as you go.

    Hi, how do you heat the corn oil and add the chocolate to it?
    should you heat the oil very hot or just heat it up a little then add the chocolate to it?

  5. I just made these cupcakes today and they turned out really yummy, but they deflated shortly after I took them out of the pan and put them on a wire rack to cool. How do I prevent this next time?
