I have not tried this recipe. I got my copy from a community cookbook. My copy is slightly different. My copy calls for 8oz chocolate chips for the filling. For the cakes it calls for 1/2 tsp salt. The rest is the same. Bake time is slightly different it calls to bake these for 20 minutes. Thanks for posting. Christine (internetnut)
These cupcakes are addicting. You can't just eat one! I got this recipe from Susan Meldelson, owner/operator of the Lazy Gourmet in Vancouver. I highly recommend this recipe
This recipe is just like the chocolate cream cheese muffins that are sold at Starbucks. BUT make these and take them to Starbucks to have with your coffee because these are BETTER. The bakery who makes these needs this recipe instead, theirs are a lousy way to spend $1.95
joyce brown makes these from hope lodge also they are good
Growing up, every year we attended a Christmas party. Black bottoms were served annually, the only time I ever got to eat them. This brings back tasty memories! They are a great party treat in the mini-cupcake size. Also, I sprayed the muffin tin really well rather than use the cupcake holders. Best comment: "Can I lick the pan?"
Thank you for posting this. We had this recipe and LOST IT! (Mom and I aren't that great at organizing the miriad of recipes that we have together) For our birthdays our Mom would bake whatever cake we wanted and this was what I always asked for instead of a cake. My daugther's birthday just passed and this is what I made for her class instead of regular cupcakes. The teacher gave the thumbs up as well as the kids. The creamcheese on top is so silky and the thing that I love about this is that they're not 'too sweet'
