Wacky cheese cupcakes 巧克力芝士小蛋糕

Frankly, after updating my blog for so many years, I started to feel lazy to keep up the same pace like last time. And seeing many of my blogger friends slowly quit the blogging world, I feel a bit lonely here....maybe I need to take a break from blogging one day..
Back to this post, I bought a 500g of cream cheese the other day due to better price if buy more. After use half to make a Japanese cotton cheesecake for my mother's Birthday. I have to search for a nice recipe to use the leftover, and found this old recipe.

I filled up the batter too much (over explored after baked), next time have to fill about 60% full.. 

Chocolate and Cream cheese, they go well very together, thumbs up!

Wacky cheese cupcakes 巧克力芝士小蛋糕
*makes 9 muffin cases (55mm diameter) 

Chocolate Cupcakes
100g all purpose flour
70g granulated white sugar
15g unsweetened cocoa powder ( I use Valrhona cocoa powder)
1/2tsp baking soda

1/4tsp fine salt
120g water
40g corn oil
1tsp white vinegar 

Cream Cheese Filling
125g cream cheese at room temperature
30g granulated white sugar
1tbsp lemon juice 


1. For cream cheese filling, with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth.

2. Add the sugar n lemon juice and beat until creamy and smooth. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

4. in a separate bowl mix in water, oil, vinegar.

5. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients until nice and smooth.

6. Divide the batter evenly among the 9 muffin cups. Then spoon a few tablespoons of the cream cheese filling into the center of each cupcake.

7. Bake in the preheated oven 170C for about 25 minutes, or when a toothpick inserted into the chocolate part of the cupcake will come out clean. 

Recipe adapted from Jane’s corner, with minor changes

Actually I just started to read your blog recently. I do come across food blogs that has been abandoned. Well you can always do something different with the direction of your blog so that you don't end up burnt out like those who quit. Publish your own cookbook perhaps? Or start taking orders on the popular recipes?

Hi Sonia,

you are one of the most popular blogger around. it'll be a great loss to the blogsphere community if we lose you too.

You have a lot of fans that love you greatly, so hopefully our love for you could also act as an encouragement to you to keep going.

Hi Sonia,
I have just baked the Cheese cupcakes. However, the cheese sank in the middle of the case. Would appreciate if you could advise what has got wrong. Thanks.
