Directions

For the cake: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a mini-cupcake pan with 36 mini liners.

In a heavy-duty mixing bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. Once thoroughly mixed, add all the wet ingredients except the boiling water. Once all mixed together, slowly add the boiling water.

For the cherry filling: Put all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. When the filling is done, it should be thick like marmalade.

For the cream cheese filling: In a small bowl, whip the cream cheese with a hand mixer until fluffy. Add all the other ingredients until completely combined. Cool in the fridge until ready for use.

To assemble: Fill the cupcake liners two-thirds of the way with the batter. Spoon 1 teaspoon cream cheese filling and 1 teaspoon cherry filling on top. Bake until the cake bounces back after you touch it, about 22 minutes. When the cupcakes are done, remove from the pan and place onto a tray to cool.

Whip the non-dairy whipping cream in a heavy-duty mixing bowl with a whisk attachment until stiff peaks form. Place the whipped cream in a pastry bag and, when the cupcakes are completely cooled, pipe a generous amount of frosting on top. Garnish with chocolate shavings and maraschino cherries.

    Made these for a gathering, They didn't stand a chance of surviving.
    These are delicious! Batter is very thin, turns out light; although a bit sticky on top. The cherry filling sank to the bottom, another sticky issue. Never made the frosting. They were gobbled up.
    Very simple to make and very tasty! I flavored my whipped cream with almond extract instead of vanilla and loved it!
    I tried this recipe; it was delicious! The black forest cake came out very moist and tasty. Also, the cream cheese filling complimented the cupcake flavour very nicely. The only changed I made was a chocolate ganache instead of a whipped cream frosting!
    This recipe is the same as Hershey's chocolate cake on the back of their cocoa with only one tsp less of vanilla. I used hot coffee instead of boiling water and buttermilk instead of milk. This is a really good chocolate cake. Don't fill the tin's too high - they really do over flow if you do.
    Even with the 3 preparations its very simple to make. The taste is great the only modification I made is that I put less sugar in the cherries mixture. The other thing is that even when I fill them 2/3 they grew a LOT so next time I´ll put the two fillings first and then the cake mixture.
