Black Bottom Cupcakes (or Cake)

Author/Submitted by: Rebecca Robbins McLane of San Francisco
Servings: 24
Categories: Cakes / Chocolate / Cupcakes / Desserts

12  ounces  cream cheese
2    eggs
1 2/3  cups  sugar
10  ounces  semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2  cups  flour, sifted
1/4  cup  cocoa powder
1  teaspoon  baking soda
1  teaspoon  salt
1  cup  water
1/3  cup  cooking oil
1  tablespoon  vinegar
1  teaspoon  vanilla

INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange 24 cupcake liners in muffin tins or liberally grease a cake/bundt pan. Blend together the cream cheese, eggs and 2/3 cup of the sugar in a large bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips. Sift the remaining sugar, the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl. Stir in the water, oil, vinegar and vanilla; beat until smooth. Fill cupcake liners 1/3 full with the chocolate batter; spoon the cheese mixture on top. If using a cake or bundt pan, scrape the batter into the pan, then top with several layers of the cream cheese topping, spreading it thinly because it will sink in deeper after each application. Bake until the cakes test done -- 30 to 35 minutes for cupcakes, 40 to 45 minutes for cake. Let cool 10 minutes before turning out on wire racks to cool completely.

Yields 24 cupcakes, or 12 servings of cake
