    Black Bottom Cupcakes, also known as black bottom muffins, are a tasty combination of chocolate cupcake and cream cheese filling.

    Are they black bottom cupcakes or black bottom muffins? I usually think of a cupcake having frosting, of which these do not. But muffins aren’t usually this sweet.

    I opted for black bottom cupcakes seeing the crumb is that of cake. But if you want to call them black bottom muffins, go for it. Whatever you call them, they’re absolutely delicious!

    Cupcakes are one of my favorite desserts. They’re just so much more portable than regular cake or nearly any other dessert and they’re just as easy to make as a cake.

    I love the grab-and-go nature of cupcakes and tend to prepare them over anything that needs to be scooped or is likely to crumble to pieces on a serving knife for a party.

    However, plain chocolate or vanilla cupcakes just don’t cut it for me anymore. I prefer cupcakes that surprise me with flavor, which is why I love these cream cheese black bottoms.

    The vanilla cream cheese mixture gets baked into the chocolate batter and it’s like a hidden surprise of cheesecake every time you sink your teeth into one of these. Basically, you get chocolate cake and cheesecake in every bite.

    Black Bottom Cupcakes are definitely on the addicting side. They’re sweet, which is why I decided they’re cupcakes and not black bottom muffins, but not overly so.

    I like serving these at potlucks and parties and I can tell you that most people find themselves reaching for a second one because they’re just that good.

    They’re also surprisingly easy to make! The cream cheese cupcake filling only has 4 ingredients and the chocolate batter is simple to make so you really only need 15 minutes of prep time.

    It’s important to take these out of the oven when the top is springing back lightly, not when they’ve browned as at that point they’ve overbaked. Let them cool before serving.

    Tools for making Black Bottom Cupcakes:

    Stand Mixer– I lived for a long time without one. My life was changed when I finally bit the bullet and bought one. Just do it and thank yourself later.

    Muffin Tin– I really suggest having two muffin tins. It makes life a lot easier than baking in two batches and double the cook time.
