Do you love raspberries with chocolate? Then these raspberry chocolate cupcakes are for you. Since my raspberry chocolate cake became the runner-up in 2020 and has already more than 100 reviews, I decided to give this flavor combination another chance. What better option than to ygo for cupcakes? Cupcakes usually require less time and are wonderful for any events, parties, or even for Valentine or a birthday. My version contains my favorite chocolate cupcake, a tart raspberry filling and buttercream bursting with raspberry flavor. No artifical food coloring required.
In exactly one week, on February 15th my blog will turn two. For this reason I decided to prepare a delicious chocolate strawberry cake. It is a very festive cake, so I think it would fit also on Valentine’s Day or later Mother’s Day.
When I started blogging about two years ago, my first blog post was French lemon tarts. I started blogging to be sure to have all the recipes I liked in one place. You know, not frantically looking for a little piece of paper, checking whether I had received a recipe on a napkin and the like. I also liked the fact that I could simply forward a link to my friends and family if they requested for me to pass on a recipe. So much easier than having to write it down in some form. Yes, I do bake with my blog, I usually have my cell phone close by.
OK, maybe I am cheesy, but this year I decided to make something for Valentine’s. I still think if you want to express your love for somebody, you don’t need a special day to do so. But hey, let’s just ignore that and instead be happy that we get to make French macarons again. Heart-shaped French macarons that is to say. With chocolate ganache. Do I need to say more?
