Black Bottom Heartache Cupcake

I decided to try a new cupcake recipe and I came across this one book that I picked up a while back ago.  Please note that I am not an avid lover of chocolate.  My sister must have stolen that all away from me because that girl LOVES her chocolate.  However, I do welcome any and all dark Godiva chocolate with a raspberry filling, I hold a special spot in my heart for that.  With that said, this cupcake is pure chocolate!  If you like, love, adore, and or worship chocolate, this is for you!  You need to go buy the ingredients now and make it ASAP.  That is a direct order.
Black Bottom Heartache


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

5 tablespoons natural unsweetened coco powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup water

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 tablespoon white or cider vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Place 12 paper liners in cupcake trays.

2. Whisk together flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

3. In separate bowl mix water, oil, vinegar and vanilla.

4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients.  Mix until smooth.

5. Pour batter into paper liners.  Fill three-quarters of the way to the top.

6. Spoon a few tablespoons of the filling into the center of each cake.  The cupcakes will now be at the top of the paper.

7. Bake for 25 minutes.

8. Coll for 5 minutes and then place on a baking rack.



8 ounces cream cheese

1/3 granulated sugar

1 egg

2 ounces bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped


1. Cream sugar, cream cheese, and egg with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes.

2. Fold in the chopped chocolate with a rubber spatula.


Everyone that tried this cupcake said that this was the best one they have ever had.  Kristin has sampled all of my cupcakes and she wants this one for her birthday, that is how good it is.  I took a plate to Starbucks for them to enjoy.  I like sharing my baked  goods with others, it gives me joy seeing their face light up.  There is just something about home-made goodies that you get...almost a warm fuzzy feeling.
