I made this recipe today for my daughter's soccer banquet. I tastde one and it was delicious. The next time I make these I will use something different to put the cream cheese filling into the batter so they will be more uniform in appearance.
Ohhh, delicious!! Quick to make too! Made 24 cupcakes and baked for some 27 minutes - these are just heavenly and will definitely get made again! Thank you Slatts!
I didn't use the whole recipe here, so I won't leave stars, but I will say as an idea, this worked brilliantly! I did use the cheesecake part of the recipe and used it to fill in mini-cupcakes made with Chewy Chocolaty Brownies. Delicious and so cute!
