Black Bottoms

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 1 package(s) (8 oz.) cream cheese
  • 1 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
  • 1 cup(s) mini chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup(s) unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1/2 cup(s) canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon(s) white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract


Heat oven to 350. Line mini muffin tins with paper liners. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, egg, 1/3 cup of the sugar and 1/4 tsp of the salt in a large bowl until creamy; stir In the chocolate chips.

In a second large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, remaining cup of sugar and 1/2 tsp salt. Add the oil, vinegar, vanilla and 1 cup water, and mix until fully incorporated.

Spoon enough of the chocolate batter into each cup so that they are filled halfway. Top each with a rounded tsp of the cream cheese mixture, gently spreading it over the chocolate.

Bake until the cupcakes are puffed and barely golden, 15 to 20 minutes.

Makes 5 dozen.
