Chocolate cupcakes with strawberry buttercream


1 For the dough, beat the eggs with sugar and vanilla sugar using the whisk of a hand mixer for about 5 minutes, until frothy. Mix the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder and sift into the egg mixture. Then stir in salt, milk and butter.

2 Preheat oven (top / bottom heat: 175 ° C / convection: 150 ° C). Grease muffin tray with butter and dust with flour. Pour in dough and bake on the middle rack of the oven for about 35 minutes. Let cupcakes cool on a wire rack.

3 For the topping, wash strawberries, pat dry, clean and halve. Beat the Shani Whipping Cream and powdered sugar with the whisk of a hand mixer until stiff and pour into a piping bag.

4 For the filling, form a small hole in the center of the cupcakes using a teaspoon, about 2.5 cm deep. Fill with jam and pipe the whipped Shani Cream on top. Then, sprinkle with chopped pistachios and garnish each cupcake with half of a strawberry.

Tip: Instead of strawberry jam, any other type of fruit jam can be used, frozen or fresh.
