Summary

I started a quest about 20 years ago to collect as many different cupcake recipes as I could, (odd I know) also did the same with coffee cake recipes, anyway this one is very good and probably one of my top 5 favorites. I hope you like it also.

Instructions

  1. 1For filling, in a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and 1/2 teaspoon salt until combined. Fold in chocolate chips; set aside.
  1. 1In a bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and remaining sugar and salt. In another bowl, whisk water, oil and vinegar; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  1. 1Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full with batter. Drop filling by heaping tablespoonfuls into the center of each. Bake at 350 F. for 24-26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  1. 1For frosting, in a large mixing bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar, cocoa, butter, milk and vanilla; beat until blended. Frost cupcakes; sprinkle with pecans. Store in the refrigerator.
    Yield: 20 cupcakes.
