Because Baking is Creative: Black Bottom Cupcakes



I found this recipe on a rainy weekend when I decided to play "Joy of Cooking Roulette" (in the dessert section of course). My finger landed on these cupcakes. They're moist and rich and yummy.

Black Bottom Cupcakes
from Joy of Cooking

Have all ingredients at room temp. Preheat oven to 350.
Beat in medium bowl until smooth:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar


Add and beat until smooth:
1 large egg

Stir in:
1 cup chocolate chips

Whisk together thoroughly in a large bowl:
1.5 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt


Add:
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp. distilled white vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla


Stir with a rubber spatula just until smooth. Fill the muffin cups about half full. Place a heaping tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture in the center of each. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the cakey part of a cupcake comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the pan and let cool completely on a rack before sprinkling with
powdered sugar
