Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Black Forest Cupcakes.

I made these little cupcakes a few weeks ago when I had my family over for dinner.  I haven’t really been doing a lot of baking recently as it has been too hot to have the oven on.  In the next few weeks you are going to see the non-bake dessert recipes appear on my site that I have been doing instead. It’s been all about the no bake peanut butter cheesecake and chocolate banoffee pie in my house.

These cupcakes have a fluffy chocolate sponge with a surprise middle of berry jam topped off with vanilla cream and a cherry.
