    Florent ...

    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon double cream
    • 2 teaspoons plain flour
    • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
    • 2 tablespoons dried apricots, chopped
    • 5 red glace cherries, finely chopped
    • 40 g good-quality dark chocolate, melted


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 180°C and line a 12-hole 2-tablespoon capacity flat-based patty pan with paper cases.
    2. 2
      Using an hand electric mixer, cream the butter and caster sugar until it is pale and creamy; add the egg and beat until the ingredients are well-combined; sift the flour over the butter mixture and stir gently to combine; stir in the cream; two-thirds fill each paper case with the mixture and smooth the surface.
    3. 3
      The Florentine Topping: Combine the butter, brown sugar and cream in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl; microwave, uncovered, on high for 1 minutes or until smooth; stir in the flour, almonds, apricots and cherries and spoon the topping over the cupcakes.

      These were good, but instead of thinking 'cupcake', concentrate on 'florentine' or you may be disappointed. The cakes are small. I used small foil linings, and I still only got 8 cakes. Also, the cake batter wasn't very sweet, so you might want to add more sugar. But the chocolate and fruit made the top sweet enough that it compensated fine. I didn't have any sliced almonds so I used chopped walnuts and a little bit of almond extract. They were very good. I'll be making these again. Nice for a Christmas or Italian buffet table. Thanks Bluemoon Downunder!
