Recipe by mamacancook

Oh my gosh-if you've NEVER had a black bottom cupcake you just don't realize what you're missing-Chocolate cake meets chocolate chip cheesecake in a cupcake!!!When I was a kid my mom was afraid to let me know of the vinegar (1 teaspoon) cuz she was afraid I'd bug out (c'mon kids don't think vinegar goes in cake batter!) but ya gotta try these!!!
