Foodie Friday {Black Bottom Cupcakes}…

I love to bake so much so that I would open a bakery!  Since I don’t own a bakery, I have to watch how much I bake at home.  Two people should not consume sweets too many times a week.  Not to mention, Raymond and I fight over food (especially the sweet stuff)!

My mom invited me a pool party recently, and I took this opportunity to bake one of my favorite recipes.  Black Bottoms.

I didn’t name the recipe; I just eat it!  They are delicious cupcake-like desserts!


  • 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
    • OR 1/2 cup chocolate chips (regular size)


  • 1.5 cups flour (all purpose)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup water

  2. Line muffin tin with paper liners.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, egg, sugar, and salt in large bowl until creamy.
