My mom made these all the time in the 70's, thanks for posting the recipe. These are the best cupcakes! Our family added the chocolate chips into the cream cheese filling and sprinkled sugar on top. Try that, it's perfect.

These cupcakes were delicious - very moist and the cream cheese in the centre was a nice touch to it! Only change I would make would be to leave out the topping. Maybe I added too much (but then again, it did make a lot) but it didn't look the prettiest when it came out of the oven and I found there was already plenty of sugar in it so that it can do without the excess on top. But all in all, a yummy treat!

Saw Marlene's pic and tried this on a whim... they turned out lovely. I omitted the topping. A keeper recipe, thanks Mai!
