Black Forest Cupcakes


Chocolate and cherries combine with spectacular results in this Black Forest Cupcake recipe. The batter contains cocoa powder, coffee extract, buttermilk, sugar, flour and a number of other ingredients. Basically, it starts off as a traditional chocolate cake. Then the fun begins. Once they’re baked, fill the cupcakes with homemade fresh cherry pie filling (cherries, water and sugar), soak them in cherry liquor, and then top with a whipped cream frosting that includes more cherry liquor. The results are beautiful and dark, just like these cupcake’s namesake.

SPRING CHICK CUPCAKES


The best way to make spring chick cupcakes is also the easiest. These are made from chocolate cupcakes. This particular recipe is vegan (meaning that they’re free of meat and animal-by products) but you can always use standard dairy-filled cupcakes. Bake them, let them cool and then remove the cupcake liners before flipping them upside down, frosting them, and then covering them in toasted coconut. Use almonds and cacao nibs for the eyes, feet and beaks to make these cute and tasty at the same time.

Once they have baked and cooled, the fun begins as you apply the toppings before serving these treats!

CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH CUPCAKES


The trick to making these chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes great lies in the use of frozen cookie dough. A small ball of it placed at the bottom of the cupcake liner becomes an easy way to add filling once the rest of the batter is poured around it. Baking these takes care of not only the dough, but the cookie as well, making this addition a pleasant surprise. Once these are baked, they are topped with a vanilla buttercream frosting, and then some tiny chocolate chips.

DARK CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES


It is entirely possible to bake healthy chocolate cupcakes. Take these, for example. They contain agave instead of refined sugar, making them just as sweet as any others available. The milk and butter can be substituted with almond or rice milk and oil, respectively, in order to make these vegan, as well as sugar-free. And, to top it all off, these cupcakes are easy to make. There are no complicated steps beyond mixing all of the ingredients together, baking them, letting them cool, and then frosting them.

STRAWBERRY BANANA CUPCAKES


There are few food combinations that go together as well as strawberries and bananas. This is proven by these strawberry banana cupcakes. The cupcakes are made from a banana, butter, milk, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla and several other ingredients. Once they are baked and have had a chance to cool, they are filled with a homemade strawberry filling made from frozen strawberries, sugar and corn starch. As if that wasn’t enough, add on some cream cheese frosting to each before serving.

SWEETHEART ROSE CUPCAKES


While including rosewater in cupcakes may sound like a strange idea, in practice it works out well. This particular recipe consists of homemade chocolate cupcakes, complete with vanilla buttercream frosting with rosewater added in. The cupcakes themselves are flavored with cane sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder and organic vanilla extract, while the frosting consists of more cane sugar and organic vanilla extract, with some rosewater. They give off the lovely scent of roses and are quite tasty!

GERMAN CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES


German chocolate cupcakes are an offshoot of classic German chocolate cake. They consist of chunks of bittersweet chocolate (although you can semisweet if you prefer), coffee, butter, cake flour, cocoa powder (for extra chocolate-y goodness) and buttermilk, among other things. However, the one thing that make them German chocolate, and not just standard chocolate cupcakes, is the semi-sweetened coconut flakes that are added to the chocolate frosting. Make sure to toast them first, in order to end up a very authentic treat!
