You Will Need

For the topping and decoration

  • 1 × 250g jar black cherry jam
  • 200ml (7fl oz) double cream, whipped
  • 50g (2oz) dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids), grated
  • Glacé cherries to decorate (optional)
Craft Essentials How to Make

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C fan oven) mark 5. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases.

2. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and sugar into a large bowl, food processor or mixer. Add the margarine or butter and the eggs and beat well until the mixture is pale and creamy. Divide the mixture equally among the paper cases and bake for about 20 minutes until firm to the touch. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

3. For the topping, cover the top of each cake with a generous amount of the jam – or you can use a jar of cherries that have been soaked in kirsch, if you like. Add the whipped cream and decorate with the grated chocolate, and a glacé cherry, if you like.
