RECIPE: Black Bottom Cupcakes


In your first mixing bowl, make the filling:

  • 1 cup cream cheese (8 ounce package)
  • 1 unbeaten egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • beat well, then stir in a 6 ounce package of chocolate chips


Sift together dry batter ingredients in the second mixing bowl:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa

Add wet batter ingredients to the second mixing bowl: 

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Mix the batter together well. Line your muffin tins and fill each cupcake a third with chocolate batter from bowl #2.  To each cupcake, add a heaping teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture from bowl #1.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.  Watch the time on these!  They may be done in 25 minutes… the cream cheese tops should still be light-colored.
This recipe makes 2 dozen cupcakes.
