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!"


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

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.
