Awesomeness Inside a Fluted Paper Cup


Soft and creamy filling….

melted chocolate gooeyness on the bottom…

all encapsulated by moist cake…..

makes for a party in your mouth!

Years ago my at-the-time boyfriend (who is now Mr. SCD) gave me this recipe to try out. At the time I was taking a psychology class in college and we were having an end of the semester party. Being as I wasn’t a very good cook and liked to bake, I opted to bring a dessert. I was pleased as punch that the cupcakes were well received – so much in fact that the platter emptied out in a flash.

Here’s the recipe:

Black Bottom Cupcakes

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/4 cup cocoa

1/2 tsp salt

5 tablespoons salad oil

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup white granulated sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup water

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

for the filling:

8 ounces cream cheese

1 egg

1/3 cup white granulated sugar

6 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips


Stir together all dry ingredients. Add all of the wet ingredients. Stir until blended. Fill 18 cupcake wrappers 1/2 full. Top each with 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese filling.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
