Jackie's Cupcakes

These are the best cupcakes! They are named for Jackie, the neighbor lady my mom got the recipe from back in the 80's. These cupcakes are chocolate with a cream cheese chocolate chip filling. They are usually requested for special occasions, such as birthdays.

What's in it
1 egg
8oz cream cheese
pinch salt
1/3 C sugar (part)
package chocolate chips
2 1/4 C flour
1 1/2 C sugar (part)
1/3 C cocoa
1 1/2 t baking soda
pinch salt
1 1/2 C water
1/2 C oil
1 1/2 T vinegar
2 tsp vanilla

How it's made
Pre heat oven to 350. Cream together egg, cream cheese, salt, sugar. Stir in chocolate chips and set aside. In a separate bowl sift together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, salt. Add water, oil, vinegar and vanilla.

Line cupcake tins with paper cups and fill with chocolate batter half way. Add a tablespoon of cream cheese mix to center of each cupcake. Bake 25 minutes. Enjoy!

Makes 2 dozen.
