Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a 12-hole 2-tablespoon capacity flat-based patty pan with paper cases.
  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. 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.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are golden; allow to completely cool in the pan; then transfer to a serving plate.
  5. Spoon the melted chocolate into a snap-lock bag, seal and snip off 1 corner. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cakes and serve.
