Yield: 16 Cupcakes
Ready to eat
The cupcakes were created for one of the lovely ladies I work with who was leaving to go onto maternity leave. Her favourite style of cake is Black Forest but being a work party I wanted something a little easier to share. Hence breaking down the key elements of a black forest cake into a cupcake version: chocolate cupcakes, cherry filling, whipped cream, chocolate shavings and of course a cherry on top!
These are a real treat and whilst the can be a little messy to eat the flavours all meld together to create a very moorish indulgence. If your after something that has your workmates, friends and family going back for seconds this is the receipe for you!
Yield: 1 Bundt Cake
The busy period at work is finally over (sorta) so I have finally been able to get back into my baking and what better way than this month’s bundt challenge from the ‘Bundt Bakers’ group. Our theme for the month: Coconut! Whilst I like coconut I sometimes feel that it can be too dry at times so I thought I would use coconut milk in the cake batter and Malibu (Coconut Rum) in the glaze.
The cake itself if fantastically moist with the combination of banana and coconut milk and they blend together without overpowering each other. If you want substitute the vanilla bean paste with a tablespoon of vanilla extract. I am sure you will enjoy this cake as much as I do!
A big shout out to my new Bundt Baking friends and especially to Terri Truscello Miller at http://loveandconfections.blogspot.com/ for hosting this month’s event.
