Black Forest Cherry Cupcake Recipe

These Black Forest Cherry Cupcakes are so easy to make, and are just the perfect size and ratio. If you need a a quick dessert, this is one we highly recommend.

These cupcakes are a twist on an old family favorite: our Easy Black Forest Cake. These make the perfect treat for any family party or potluck dinner. They are always a big hit.
We keep them in the fridge until serving- they are so good cold.
This is a cake classic. The combination of the chocolate, with the cream cheese, and the cherry pie filling creates the perfect flavor.
It is so easy to make and tastes absolutely amazing.
You could make this into a cake, but the cupcakes are a fun little change, and perfect for feeding a crowd.

what other fruit would could i put on top?

I love the cherry pie filling, but if you are not a cherry fan, you could also use cherries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches, etc.

You could also use gelatin with whatever fruit or pie filling you desire. You don’t even need the gelatin or the pie filling, you could also just use fresh fruit.

how to make the cream cheese mixture without lumps:

Often when making foods or frosting with cream cheese, little lumps can get left behind. To keep this from happening, here is what I recommend:

  • Mix the cream cheese by itself with a hand mixer. This will help soften it, and make it easier to combine other ingredients.
  • cream and spread out the cream cheese in the bowl, with a hand mixer. Add the other ingredients and continue to use the hand mixer, and combine the ingredients.
  • This will help with the lumps of cream cheese, but be sure to give it a good mix by itself for a few minutes.
