I was looking through my old tin recipe file and found this card, handwritten by a lady named Emily Smith. I worked with her years and years ago. I love that it is in her handwriting and there is a smear of chocolate on it. I have not made this recipe in so long; I really cannot remember when I did. I was looking for something different to make for our Sweet Taste of Saturday and this one jumped out at me. Thank you Emily!
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, salt, sugar and baking soda. Add water, oil, vinegar and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until batter is creamy. Set aside.
In a separate bowl cream together the cream cheese, egg, sugar and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray cooking spray into two 12-count muffin tins. Fill each cup 1/2 full of batter. Drop about 1 teaspoon (walnut sized) of the cream cheese mixture in the center of each tin of batter.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Makes 24 cupcakes.
To me, nothing beats an old-fashioned red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting. Well, unless it’s a slice of cake of the same! Moist, deep in flavors, slightly sweet and topped with an incredible frosting!
For those dark chocolate lovers out there, this is definitely a dessert that you need to try. I’ve never tasted anything like this cake recipe; it’s like biting into a soft chocolate bar. It is rich and full of dark chocolate flavor. Makes about 18 cupcakes.
