Black Forest Cupcakes
Black Forest Cake turned to Black Forest Cupcakes? Who knew it could be done!
Black Forest Cake turned to Black Forest Cupcakes? Who knew it could be done!!!For as long as I can remember, Black Forest Cake was always around for Birthday’s and special occasions. It was the one thing you knew would be on the menu and up to this day, that tradition hasn’t changed. We still desire the flavors of Black Forest Cake and the specialness surrounding it.
So this year for my Birthday and Dad’s I decided to revive the tradition, and not only recreate that Black Forest Flavor that we love, but also make it into bite size cupcakes that are sure to please and are so much more fun! And so this recipe for Black Forest Cupcakes was born.
SO WHAT IS BLACK FOREST CAKE?
Traditionally Black Forest Cake is a layered cake from Germany consisting of layers of chocolate cake with cherries and whipped cream, then covered in shaved chocolate, with the addition of a German cherry liqueur known as Kirschwasser.
Doesn’t that just sound amazing?
So the challenge was taking this traditional layered cake and turning it into cupcake goodness. And our mission was accomplished!
With a few adjustments and a little experimenting, we were able to create a Black Forest Cupcake that is so delicious and reminiscent of the ones we used to have that we don’t even miss the original.
Plus it’s vegan too! How great is that? So grab a bowl, print out the recipe and give it a try if you miss this cake as much as we did!! Enjoy!
