Black Bottom Cupcakes

My mom used to make these very delicious cupcakes.
1 c sugar
1 ½ c flour
5 T oil (I use grapeseed oil, not too bad for you, and neutral in flavor)
1 t vanilla
¼ c dry unsweetened cocoa, preferably Dutch Process
½ t salt
1 c h2o
1 T vinegar
Filling: 8 oz. softened cream cheese, 1/3 c sugar, 6 oz. semisweet chocolate chips, 1 beaten egg, dash o’ salt
Chopped walnuts, sugar
Cupcakes: sift dry ingredients together, blend wet ingredients, add wet to dry ingredients. Fill cupcakes 1/3 full. Blend filling ingredients, then drop 1 T in each cupcake. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts and a bit of sugar. Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen.

    If there’s one thing every mormon loves it’s a delicious dessert, and these cupcakes definitley sound like they’ll fit the bill. Will report back when we make them.
