Share it:

These wonderful cupcakes combine chocolate cake with chocolate chip cheesecake. They have been in our family for years and are always a BIG hit when brought to a function!

"These cupcakes were very easy to make! I'm not into baking so when homemade cupcakes turn out this good for me, it's definitely a recipe to keep! Simple enough to involve the children, too!"


Are you making this? 
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar, granulated
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup cooking oil (canola or veg)
1 Tbsp vinegar
1 Tbsp vanilla
Cheesecake Filling
8 ounces cream cheese; May use "light" but "fat-free" not recommended
1/3 cup sugar, granulated
1 whole egg; May use 2 large whites for lighter texture in cheesecake
1/8 tsp salt
6 ounces chocolate chips

Original recipe makes 24 Servings



Mix first nine ingredients by hand or with electric mixer until well blended.

Pour into cupcake cups, only 1/3 to 1/2 full.

These are delicious cupcakes!




Fantastic filled cupcakes! These turned out very even but oftentimes the cheesecake is lopsided but amazing.

Very easy to make and great tasting. . Ni need for icing. I didn't use any chocolate chips.
