Imagine a chocolate cake with cheese in the center!! Mouthwatering is it!! Yes it is and I was also so excited to make it as well. So, here comes moist and springy chocolate cheese cupcake for you to enjoy. This was my treat for my BF for my 1st Anniversary too :). Cupcakes for easy to make but it care should be taken to prepare it. This cupcake has two fillings with cheese and chocolate. Be careful when you are making cheese filling as it should be very thick else when it bakes all the cheese will flow down from your cupcake pans, which is a important factor in the making. Also, this is a unique recipe as I used oil to make this it may be canola or vegetable oil.


This tastes great when you refrigerate and have. You can store these for 3-4 days as well. And also do not bake it for long time as it will turn hard. This is spongy and moist with delicious chocolate flavor which comes from cocoa powder and not a melted chocolate and the interesting part is you don’t need a electric mixer for making this if you don’t have any and you can just use a ladle to mix the batter. Use the paper liners in the cups but it’s purely optional.


Cheese Filling:

  • Cream cheese- 225 Grams
  • White sugar-1/3 cup
  • Vanilla extract- ½ Tspn
  • Egg-1
Chocolate Batter:
  • All purpose flour-1 ½ cup
  • Cocoa powder -1/3 Cup
  • Sugar-1 Cup
  • Oil-1/3 Cup
  • Vinegar-1 Tspn
  • Vanilla extract-1 Tspn
  • Baking soda-½ Tspn
  • Salt-1/4 Tspn
  • Water-1 Cup
Temperature and Time Duration:
  • Temp:350 degrees F (180 degrees C)
  • Time:25 Minutes



  • Cream Cheese Filling:
    Beat the cream cheese until it becomes creamy and add the sugar, vanilla extract, egg and beat again until it becomes smoother and keep it aside. But as I mentioned already make sure the mixture is hard (Step1, 2, 3)
  • Chocolate Batter:
    In a bowl sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt so that it combines well and remove all the impurities and keep aside (Step 4,Step 5)

    In another bowl mix the water, vinegar, vanilla extract and oil and keep aside (Step 6)

    Now mix the dry flour ingredient with the oil ingredient and stir well until it becomes smooth. Divide the batter among the muffin cups in the pan. Then spoon a cream cheese filling into the center of each chocolate batter in the cup pan as shown in the picture (Step 7,8,9,10)
  • Set into the oven for the time mentioned and the cream cheese filling has set nicely in the mid of the batter a toothpick inserted into the chocolate part of the cupcake will come out clean. Remove from oven and keep it on a wire rack to cool.
