  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 80 grams Butter
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 24 Pitted cherries
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Brandy
  • 1/4 cup Orange juice

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a 12 hole cupcake tin.
  2. Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder and half a cup of sugar into large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl melt butter, let cool and add together eggs, milk and vanilla.
  4. Make a small well in dry ingredients and add wet mixture, beat on low speed until combined scraping down edges.
  5. Spoon into tins and bake for 15-18 minutes.
  6. While cakes are baking, add half the cherries, remaining sugar, brandy and orange juice to a saucepan.
