What do you think about when driving? Strange question you might ask for a baking blog, but I thought of these cupcakes when I was driving home from work the other night.
It had been a stressful day in the office (they all seem to be at the moment!) and I was driving home listening to Simon Mayo on Radio 2. I think I just listen subconsciously even though I do enjoy the show, as by the time I’d pulled up outside my home, I had cherry choc chip cupcakes in my head.
I thought the flavours, akin to a black forest gateau would be lovely and be a perfect way to use up some dried cherries I had in the cupboard. And I used up some cream cheese for my chocolate cream cheese frosting on top. Finished off with a whole cherry.
When I made them, I realised they would be a perfect bake for a Comic Relief bake sale. Perhaps a glace cherry would stand out a bit more like a red nose, but I loved my stem on cherries on top.
The recipe is underneath, but I’m now wondering if any of you will be having a bake sale for Comic Relief this year? It is such a good cause and we always have a bake sale in our office. Below are a couple of other recipes to get you inspired for ‘Red Nose Day’.
