Rod MacIntyre in Darmouth writes: "I've attached a recipe I got from my sister (Imelda Farrell in Antigonish) years ago. It is a crowd pleaser for anyone who likes chocolate and it's quick and easy!"



8 oz. cream cheese                              1/4 cup cocoa

1 egg                                                  1 tsp. baking soda

1/3 cup sugar                                      1/2 tsp. salt

Pinch of salt                                         1 cup water

1 cup chocolate chips                          1/3 cup salad oil

1 1/2 cups flour                                   1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup sugar                                         1 tsp. vinegar




  1. Fill regular sized muffin tins with large paper liners or use no grease non- stick muffin tins.
  2. Cream together cream cheese, egg and 1/3 cup sugar, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips and set aside. I use milk chocolate chips.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt.  Add water, oil, vinegar and vanilla to flour mixture and stir.
  4. Fill each muffin tin 1/3 full with chocolate batter mixture.  Drop a large spoonful of cream cheese mixture on top. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until the chocolate cake part springs back when lightly touched. Makes approximately 20 cupcakes. Enjoy!
