Making black bottom cupcakes

Oops. I forgot to tell you that I made cupcakes for one of my many work-related holiday parties. Icing cupcakes didn't appeal to me (iced cupcakes being hard to transport in bulk quantities), so I opted for black bottom cupcakes. The cream cheese topping serves as a built-in icing, so nobody suffered.

This type of cupcake was one of my sister's favourite comfort foods when we lived at home, and for good reason. They're sweet, but not too sweet, and they're good cold or warmed up (the chocolate chips in the cream cheese topping melt when you warm them up).

I got my recipe out of the Joy of Cooking, which is where I believe my mom found the recipe way back when. If you want to follow our lead, Culinate posted the recipe just for you.

Favourite. Cupcake. Ever.

I would go make these RIGHT NOW, 'cause I love them so much, but sadly we are snowed in and OUT OF SUGAR.

Because you know me, I'm sure you can imagine the horrible drama I am making out of this no-sugar event.

Poooooooooor Zoe. Or more accurately, poooooooooor Dan.

I would make these right now too BUT sugar is a forbidden food for the next 16 months so I will have to dream about these....
