Black Bottom Cupcakes - When planning for an event or just a special dinner at home, one thing to consider is cupcakes. Of course, your first thought may be that these little individual cakes are too cutesy and only suitable for a childrens party.
When you choose the right recipe however, then you can provide elegant, tasty and lovely cupcakes. For example, an excellent type of cupcake which would be suitable for any event is the black bottom cupcake.
This type includes a central recipe of devils food cake along with a creamy white center made from cream cheese and sugar. The combination of the two creates a lovely marbled cupcake with a black bottom. The taste is rich and sweet. If you would like to try your hand at making them, here is what you will need to do.
You will need devils food cake batter. You can either make this from scratch or from a cake mix. You will also need muffin pans, cupcake liners, sugar, cream cheese, icing if you choose to use it, and decorations if you want them.
Once you have placed liners in each of the cups of the pan, spoon devils food cake batter into each. You will only place about a tablespoon full into each for now. However, you do not have to consider this an exact science. Just spoon a small amount into each.
For the cream cheese filling, you will need to mix two standard size packages with a cup of sugar and an egg. It would be best if you allowed the cream cheese to reach room temperature before you try to create the mixture. Now, you will want to spoon the cream cheese mixture on top of the cake batter. Again, you will want to include approximately a tablespoon. The final step would be to finish off the mix with the rest of the devils food cake, filling each cup just over halfway so that the cake will have room to rise.
Follow the directions on the cake mix for baking, which is usually twenty or so minutes at 350 to 375 degrees.
If you choose to add frosting, two flavors that compliment the cupcakes nicely are vanilla or cream cheese. For decoration, you could include a chocolate chip or chocolate shavings. The cupcakes taste quite nice with or without frosting.
