Description

Black forest cake is a German classic, originating in the Black Forest region of Baden-Württemberg. These muffins capture all the cherry and chocolate flavor of the German favorite. Made with rich cocoa powder, melted dark chocolate, candied orange peel, cherries, and walnuts, these Black Forest Muffins are full of rich and decadent flavors. Sprinkle with powdered sugar after baking for a snowy and elegant finish. Bake time is 20 to 25 minutes.
