Cherries and chocolate: A match made in heaven!

"Nothing reminds me more of my first day as an intern at the Romantik Hotel Spielweg in Germany than Black Forest Cake and steaming hot coffee. Our
version has it all: a rich chocolate cupcake filled with cherries in syrup and
topped with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and a fresh cherry."

[Oh how I wish you could see the full-page color photograph of these luscious cupcakes in Chef John Besh's latest cookbook! This recipe rings my bell. As
a matter of fact, it rings all my bells... MG]

One 15-ounce can pitted sweet cherries
in syrup
4 ounces dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 1/3 cups plus 1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon cherry brandy
or Kirschwasser
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
Dark chocolate, shaved into curls
with a vegetable peeler
Fresh cherries for topping

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Drain the cherries, reserving the cherries and syrup separately. Combine the cherry syrup, chopped
chocolate, sugar, butter, and the 1/4 cup brandy in a saucepan. Over
low heat, stir until the chocolate has melted. Pour into a large mixing
bowl and whisk in the egg. Sift together the flour, cocoa, and baking
powder into a small bowl, then fold gently into the chocolate mixture.
2. Fit 12 cups of a muffin tin with paper liners and spray with non-stick
oil. Pour the batter evenly into each cup. Bake for 30 minutes, or until
the cupcakes are firm to the touch. Let cool for a few minutes and
then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
3. Mix the remaining 1 tablespoon brandy with the remaining 1 table-
spoon sugar and stir into the whipped cream. Cut a quarter-size hole
into the top of each cupcake and fill with canned cherries, Frost with
the whipped cream and top with shaved chocolate, and a fresh cherry,
