Good Eats and Yummy Treats: Surprise Cupcakes

In case you didn't get over to The Freckled Bug to check out my guest post (you should go check it out-I'm giving away something fun from my Etsy shop), here's what you missed (speaking of The Freckled Bug, don't forget to enter the hairbow giveaway!):

Today I'm going to share with you a delicious and easy cupcake recipe.  It was one of my favorites as a little girl.  Here we go!

Surprise Cupcakes


1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. white vinegar
1 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar


1 egg, unbeaten
1 cup chocolate chips
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all cupcake ingredients together and blend until smooth.  In a separate bowl, blend filling ingredients together.  Line or spray a muffin tray.

Fill muffin cups 1/3 full with cupcake batter,

drop in a large spoonful of filling

and cover with a spoonful of cupcake batter.  Bake for 25 minutes.  This recipe makes 24 cupcakes.  Or you can do them in a mini muffin pan for parties!

And there you have it-a simple, delish desert!
