It’s still very hot in Vienna. However I decided not to get dictated by the weather and make some cupcakes with cream anyway…. and eat them really fast, so they can not melt. I’m this considerate when it comes to dessert. It would just be wrong to let it go to waste or sit in the fridge for a long time. Good thing these cupcakes are to delicious to hold onto them for any longer.

I got this cute little glass dome with the sweet cupcake stand at the pottery market that I told you about. It’s been waiting for so long for it’s grand appearance on the blog.


All you need is:
– 250 g flour
– 1 Tsp baking powder
– 2 Tbsp cacao powder
– 1 Tsp allspice
– 200 g dark chocolate cut into pieces (or chocolate drops)
– 100 g butter (room temperature)
– 100 g castor sugar
– 100 g brown sugar
– 2 eggs
– 160 g sour cream
– 5 Tbsp milk

Preheat the oven to 190° C. Mix the flour with the baking powder, cacao powder, allspice in a bowl and add the cut dark chocolate. Beat the butter with the 2 kinds of sugar in an extra bowl and slowly add the eggs, sour cream and milk. Then thoroughly but slowly combine the dry with the wet ingredients. Put the dough into a muffin tray and bake in the preheated oven for 25 mins.

For the cream:
– 90 g sour cream
– 90 g double cream
– 90 g whipped cream
– 3 Tbsp powdered sugar

Beat the cream with one tablespoon sugar and mix the sour cream and double with the 2 tablespoon sugar. Combine slowly.

Pipe the cream on the cupcakes once cooled and put a cherry on top.

Now look what delicious chocolate, sour cream cupcake with cherry I made!


Because of the allspice and sour cream those cupcakes are extra tasty and moist. You’ll see the table set for 3 and wonder who would visit me. Thank you for reminding me, nobody visited. Of course. I’m all alone as always. Even my boyfriend didn’t want to join me at the coffee date because “it is too hot”. Pah! Don’t let the weather rule you, rule the weather! Or so. Weirdo.

Next time I invite you and you have to come and listen to my stories about how great I am and compliment the cupcakes. I would also offer you a cold drink but that’s the only commitment I would make to the heat. There. That’s a plan. For next time.


Now. Carry on!
