Ingredients

Method

1.

Line two x 12-hole muffin pans (1⁄3-cup capacity) with paper cases.

2 Place batter in a large bowl. Fold in cherries and coconut. Divide evenly among paper cases in the pan.

3 Cook in a moderately slow oven (160C) for about 25 minutes, or until cooked when tested. Remove. Stand cakes in pans for 10 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

4 To make ganache, stir chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl sitting over a saucepan of simmering water, until melted and smooth. Remove bowl. Cool slightly.

5 Spread 1 tsp ganache over the top of each cupcake. Decorate with extra coconut.
