How to make it

  • Preheat oven at 350.
  • Line with cupcake foils or grease 2 regular-size muffin pans.
  • Chop cherries and transfer to a small bowl. If using brandy, cover cherries in brandy and set aside to plump.
  • In a medium sized bowl, sift/mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  • Melt chocolate & butter over a double boiler; stir in sugar; let cool for 7-10 minutes. Transfer to mixer and beat for about 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, mixing for about 30 seconds after each addition.
  • Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, & salt into the mixture & mix until blended. Drain cherries & fold into batter.
  • Scoop batter into muffin tins and bake for about 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
  • For Frosting: In a large bowl, beat the mascarpone cheese, heavy whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla extract until soft peaks start to form (*Do not overbeat or mixture will curdle).
  • Frost cupcakes.
