Chocolate-Cherry Cupcakes

May/June 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (73 votes)

The chopped cherries blend into the ultra-rich chocolate cake, giving these cupcakes a slight cherry flavor while keeping it super-moist with little added oil. The combination of reduced-fat cream cheese and sour cream gives the frosting cheesecake-like flavor with about 40 calories and 3 grams saturated fat less than a traditional cream cheese frosting.

"I've made this fabulous cupcake recipe twice now and it's been a hit both times. I used nonfat Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream in the frosting and it's unbelievably rich. P.S. Has anyone ever baked it as a cake? What adjustments...

Loved it!

This recipe was so rich and yummy! Not too sweet. My husband who shies away from any sort of overly sweet dessert LOVED this one!

A fantastic recipe! While I used the required ratios of whole wheat and regular flour, I used all-purpose, not cake, flour, and it still came out fine. I used pitted frozen cherries for the batter, too, which was super easy. I find regular cupcakes too sweet and too much most of the time, and these were tasty and delicious. And the frosty is YUM!!!

These were a HUGE hit for a birthday celebration (an adult's, not kid's, party). These are quite simple to make. The most labor-intensive part is pitting the cherries, but even that wasn't bad. Like!
