Wow! Did that ever load fast...oops, back to the cupcakes. Yes, although they may look a little funny, you'll change your mind as soon as you take your first bite, perhaps even sooner.
Creamy Dreamy Chocolate Cupcakes
1 1/2 Cups Flour (I used whole wheat)
1/2 Cup Sugar (I uses Sucanat)
1/4 Cup Cocoa
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 Tsp. Salt
1 Cup Water
5 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Vinegar (I used organic apple cider vinegar with mother)
1 tsp. Vanilla
Chocolate Chip Filling:
1 8-oz Package of Cream Cheese
1/3 Cup of Sugar (again, I used Sucanat)
1 6-oz Package of Chocolate Chips
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, soda, and salt. in a second bowl, beat together the water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Gradually add this to the dry ingredients, beating until smooth. Fill 18 paper lined cupcake tins about half full of batter. Set aside and make filling. To make the filling beat the cream cheese, sugar, and eggs together in a small mixing bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips. Now top each cupcake with about a tablespoon of the batter, and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until top springs back when pressed.
Enjoy these wonderful cupcakes, but don't forget to share!
