  • Divide the batter among the cups, filling to just below the rim. Bake until a toothpick inserted in a cupcake comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely in the pans.

  • In a small bowl, stir the bourbon, if using, into the preserves. Using a cupcake corer or a paring knife, cut a 1-inch-deep hole into each cupcake. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Place one sour cherry in each hole. Fill with 2 tsp. of the preserves. Top with 3 more cherries.
