Black Bottom Cupcakes

I was not going to post these cupcakes at first that is until Laurie of Quirky Cupcake convinced me to. You see, while I was waiting for the oven timer to go off, I decided to browse the net. And as luck would have it, I discovered Laurie’s Black Bottom Cupcakes! I leave her a comment stating that mine are in the oven as “we speak”. Laurie leaves me a comment to make sure that I go ahead and post them anyway. So here I am, posting Laurie’s world famous Black Bottom Cupcakes courtesy of David Lebovitz.

This is the second time this has happened to me. Not too long ago Katie of Apple and Spice baked a batch of cookies that I was going to post. Because of these lovely bakers beating me to the oven, I am going to keep next week’s post top secret.

I have not even decided on what to bake yet. When I do decide, I will make sure to close the windows, pull down the blinds, and turn off the lights. I cannot have anyone getting a hint of what is in the oven.

Before I go, let me share this bit of info: these cupcakes are outrageous! Deep dark chocolate cake with a layer of cheesecake. Yes, cheesecake! There are also chunks of chocolate throughout the cake. Hello?! Can we say …death by chocolate cake with a smidgen of cheesecake heaven!

Grab the recipe here.

The same thing has happened to me 3 times with Coconut and Lime. It's really weird. We finally decided we should just plan to bake the same thing one week since we clearly have similiar tastes. Great shot of the cupcakes!

I grew up on a very similar cupcake - but we called them chocolate cheesecake cupcakes. They were always a favorite. Yours look perfect!

I like when multiple bloggers post about the same thing, then I'm sure the recipe's going to turn it out and they've invariably convinced me to try it too.

These look great and I love the contrast of the white and dark- like little dairy cows!
