Why I Love This Recipe

My mom and I love to cook together. One day she found black bottom cupcakes online. So we decided to cook black bottom cupcakes. It isn’t a tradition, but it’s really fun to make. We made them and loved them. We make them for family gatherings or even small picnic​s,​ and I wanted to share them with the 8th grade at the feast.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Chopped almonds, optional


In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and salt until smooth.

Stir in chips and set aside.

For cupcakes, in a large bowl, beat the sugar, water, oil, egg, vinegar and vanilla until well-blended.

Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into egg mixture until blended.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full with chocolate batter.

Drop a heaping tablespoon of cheese mixture in center of batter of each cupcake.

Sprinkle with sugar and chopped almonds if desired.

Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cake portion comes out clean.

Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to racks to cool completely.

Refrigerate leftovers.
