Chocolate-Cherry Cupcakes

I made some Chocolate-Cherry Cupcakes this afternoon, they turned out quite yummy.

Here is the recipe:-

125g soft unsalted butter

100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces

300g morello cherry jam

150g caster sugar

pinch of salt

2 large eggs, baten

150g self raising flour

12 bun muffin tin.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C / gas mark 4


Put the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan on the heat to melt.  When nearly  completely melted, stir in the chocolate.    Leave for a moment to begin softening, then take the pan off the heat and stir with a wooden spoon until the butter and chocolate are smooth and melted.   Now add the cherry jam, sugar, salt and eggs.   Stir with the wooden spoon and when all is pretty well amalgamated stir in the flour.

Scrape and pour into the muffin papers in their tin and bake for 25 mins.

Cook in the pan on a rack for 20 mins before turning out.
