This is by far one of the best cupcake recipes around. I made these for my son's preschool and he came home with an empty plate! I would like to try a variation on this with white or strawberry cake mix, strawberry cream cheese and white chocolate chips. Excellent baked product that is worth the extra step of filling, try it!

I've made these cupcakes a dozen times since I stumbled onto this recipe. Best to stick with the ingredients as-is to get the best filling texture. I drop the filling in AFTER filling the batter up to about 3/4 of the cupcake paper and the filling always moves to the bottom as it should. Family and co-workers request that I bring these to almost every big get-together, they are a hit!

This recipe is fantastic! I have made these cupcakes a few times now, most recently as one of three kinds for my wedding a couple of weeks ago. These ones were all gone by the end of the night, and my aunt dubbed them the BEST CUPCAKES EVER! Only thing I did differently is fill the cups halfway, put in extra cream cheese mix, and put enough batter on top to mostly cover the cream cheese. Thank you so much for the recipe!

These are easy to make and so good! I didn't put a glaze or frosting on them, but I thought that Ms_Bold's picture looked amazing! I doubled the cream cheese center. I made 26 cupcakes. I definitely will use this recipe again. Thank you for posting this recipe.

My mom made these for us when we were young and they were one of my favorites! I made this as a bundt cake and it turned out great. I included the egg in the filling. Once cooled, I drizzled with a chocolate glaze. Enjoy.

I started making this recipe this morning to take to work. I got a late start in making it and was rushed for time. I made 12 cupcakes and then decided to pour the remaining batter and filling into a 9" square baking pan. I put the filling on the batter in scattered blobs and then swirled them with a knife. i baked both the cupcakes and the cake at the same time and had to increase the baking time by about 5 minutes. I used mini chocolate chips in the filling so that they would spread more evenly throughout the filling. Everyone loved this recipe!!! Five people had seconds!!! Thank you for posting this recipe!

This is an old favorite recipe, and my kids just love it! I mix it up by using different flavors of cake mix, and I generally top with just a swirl of icing so to not overpower the yummy filling. So good! Hostess better look out!

These are amazing little treats. I prepared them for my hubby's birthday and stacked them in a pyramid on a pedestal cake plate and drizzled with Very Shiny Chocolate Glaze for a spectacular presentation. Honestly, they needed no frosting or glaze, though. I used a German Chocolate cake mix and semi-sweet chocolate bits. I used the same semi-sweet chocolate to create the glaze. Some of the cream cheese mixture did sink to the middle and create a filling for the cup cakes, and some stayed on top and marbled beautifully. I am not a baker and love any help that I can get. These cupcakes made me look like a pro and were a hit for the birthday.
