Foodie Fridays: Black Bottom Cupcakes

By alpineberry

This is one of my favorite chocolate recipes, so I thought it only fitting to share it this week.  Cupcakes are all the rage right now, and this recipe is quite easy to make.  The combination of chocolate cake with cream cheese filling is irresistible, and is sure to satisfy any chocoholic's cravings!

Black Bottom Cupcakes

Cake:
3 C. flour
2 C. sugar
1/2 C. cocoa powder
2/3 C. vegetable oil
2 C. water
2 tsp. baking soda
2 T. vinegar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg

Filling:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 C. sugar
1 egg
1 C. semisweet chocolate chips

Combine first three cake ingredients.  Stir in remaining cake ingredients until thoroughly blended.  Combine filling ingredients.  Line muffin tins with paper or foil cups and fill 1/2 to 2/3 full with batter. Place a large teaspoon of filling in the middle of each cupcake.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Makes 30 cupcakes.
