Cheese Filled Chocolate Cupcakes


An extremely simple and quick recipe and the result is simply relish … a cupcake with a twist … perfect for tea-time snack or as pudding over dinner/lunch … the individual portion is neat & today 😉


The batter with the filling dropped on top …These work best if you only fill the paper cups 1/2 full with batter before you add the cream cheese mixture


… if you drop in only about 1 Tbsp of the cheese mixture then when you bake, the cake will rise and enclose the cream cheese making it a lovely self-filled cupcake … I didn’t wanna waste the balance of the cheese mixture so I topped the cake with all of it hence a thicker layer of the cheese and looks more layered than self-filled 😉


Everybody will want your recipe!


Ingredients :

For Cake :

1 box cake mix, Devils Chocolate or any Chocolate cake mix (and required ingredients listed on the box) ..this is my “cheat” way … you may make the chocolate cake from scratch using your own recipe, if you wish


For the Cream Cheese Mixture :

8 oz Philly cream cheese

1/3 cup sugar

1 egg

1/8 tsp. salt

Method :

  • Cream sugar, cream cheese, egg, and salt until smooth & well blended
  • Mix the cake batter per instructions on the cake-mix box or per your own chocolate cake recipe
  • Line muffin pans with cupcake paper cups and fill paper cups 1/2 full and drop a tablespoon of cheese mixture into center of cupcake
  • Bake as directed on cake box  … bake for the shortest cupcake time listed on box … note : cake needs to be cooked but the cheese filling doesn’t need to look baked and it will set as the cupcakes cool once out of the oven
  • Makes about 20 regular cupcakes or 30 mini ones
