Cherry Cobbler Cupcakes for July 4th

Cherry Cobbler Cupcakes

My cupcake suggestion for this year’s July 4th party combines the taste of cherry cobbler with the fun factor of a single serving cupcake – complete with iconic cherry (my non-cupcake suggestion, in case you were curious, is my homemade Pocky Sticks decked out for July 4th)!  These cherry cobbler cupcakes feature two fresh pitted cherries baked right into a brown sugar lemony batter.

The cherry cobbler cupcakes are even better when wrapped in adorable cupcake wrappers from Bella Cupcake Couture

…and set out on a stand from The Smart Baker!

Cherry Cobbler Cupcakes for July 4th

Yield: 16 cupcakes

Cherry Cobbler Cupcakes for July 4th

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 32 cherries, pitted and de-stemmed
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Fresh whipped cream, to taste
  • 16 cherries with stems, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat brown sugar and butter until fully combined.
  3. Mix in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Mix in eggs one at a time.
  5. Mix in lemon extract and milk.
  6. Fill cupcake liners ¼ full. Note that this will not use all of the batter.
  7. Bake for 7 minutes.
  8. While the batter is baking, roll the pitted and de-stemmed cherries in a bowl of corn starch and sugar until the cherries are fully coated.
  9. Remove cupcake tin from the oven and place two coated cherries on top of the partially cooked batter in each cupcake liner.
  10. Divide remaining batter evenly among the cupcake liners, covering the cherries. The batter will come nearly to the top of the cupcake liners.
  11. Bake for 20 minutes or until cupcakes bounce back when lightly touched.
  12. Top each cooled cupcake with fresh whipped cream and a cherry.
