Black Forest Cupcakes



These decadent cupcakes are perfectly chocolatey with a soft and moist crumb and that cherry pie filling, well try not to eat it by the spoonful before you fill the cupcakes.
In a way these remind me a of a ding dong type cupcake but with of course the bonus of that delicious filling.

Ingredients
Cupcake
  • 3 oz bittersweet chocolate , finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup unsweetend cocoa powder (regular or Dutch-processed)
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 3/4 cup bread flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Filling and Topping
  • 1 1/4 cups cherry pie filling , store bought or homemade
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Finely chopped chocolate or real chocolate sprinkles , for garnish


Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the chopped chocolate and cocoa powder in a medium bowl, then pour hot water over chocolate mixture and whisk until smooth.
