Easy Delicious Cupcakes

Kater | Mar 4, 2007 06:06 AM

OK, this one is not for the baking purists, but I am a cook who hates baking so for me this 'dish' was a triumph!

Here's the heresy: start with a box of chocolate cake mix and prepare it according to the package instructions. Then combine two 8 oz. packages of cream cheese with a pinch of salt, two eggs, and a half cup of sugar. Line a muffin tin with cupcake papers and fill about 1/4 full with the cake batter. Then place a rounded tablespoon of the creamcheese mixture in the center. Barely cover with more of the chocolate cake batter and bake according to the box's instructions.

I frosted them with barely sweetened stabilized whipped cream and topped with a strawberry. I know they've got a distinct semi-ho feel, but they were so good that my Husband insists that I never make them again. We served them at a party and finished nearly all of the leftovers in one sitting!
