Ingredients:

 

  • 1 ¼ cup. flour
  • 1 ¼ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

 

 

Strawberry Filling

 

  • 1 pint strawberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. gelatin
  • 2 tsp. hot water

 

 

Whipped Cream

 

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. gelatin
  • 2 ounces melting chocolate
  • 1 TBSP. superfine sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla essence

 

 

Instructions:

 

Prepare a baking pan with 12 paper cupcake liners. Place softened butter and sugar into a bowl and cream together well (about 2 minutes). Add in beaten eggs a little at a time, beating slowly between each addition. Add vanilla. Sift in flour, baking powder and cocoa and mix together for another minute. Spoon batter into prepared pan approximately 2/3 full. Place the pan in the middle rack of your oven and bake for approximately 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove the pan from the oven and let sit for a few minutes before removing the cupcakes from the tins and placing them on a wire rack to cool.

 

To make the filling: Slice the strawberries into small pieces. Keep 12 strawberries to decorate the tops. In a small bowl, mix the gelatin and sugar with hot water until is has dissolved. Let it cool, then add the sliced strawberries and mix to combine. Once the mixture starts to gel, give it little mix. Cut a small hole in the center of each cupcake and dig out with a spoon. Discard the center and fill hole with the strawberry filling. To make the whipped cream topping, dissolve the gelatin with the hot water and allow to cool. Then beat the cream with an electric mixer just until traces of the beaters can be seen in the cream. Slowly pour the cool gelatin mixture into the cream while still beating. Add the vanilla, and beat just until soft peaks start to form. Using a spatula or a knife, cover the top of the cupcakes with the whipped cream. Melt the chocolate over hot water (or use a double boiler) and drizzle the melted chocolate over the cream. Top with a fresh whole strawberry
