Sacher Cupcake

Hello Again! :)

I've chosen to be the representative of Hungary in an international recipe eBook. Yay! :D
(I don't know how popular  a recipe eBook can be nowadays? Personally, I haven't got any... And to be honest I don't have an eBook reader, neither. I prefer reading real books. But still... This makes me so proud. :D ) 

And as I have found my lost recipes, I can share them with You now. :) Like this Sacher Cupcakes.
I made them for my colleagues' birthday, which was one day before mine, so we had a group celebration at the hotel. And the inspiration came also from them, as my colleague has a secret Sacher recipe...
I don't know if I can tell the secret, but... Here is it:
 Step 1: Grab the brownie from the canteen.
Step 2: Cut it up horizontally.
Step 3: Fill it with jam. 
That's it... :D 
So, honestly, mine is a little bit more complicated,  as we didn't have brownies at home, just simply ready. 
But it's easy, and fun. And as I have a Sacher Cake on the blog with the original recipe (You can check) I decided to make them in cupcakes. :) Cheers!
