IMG_5964xThis is one of my mom's recipes and one of my most favorite. Being that it is an old recipe, passed down on a weathered recipe card, some of the measurements were left to interpretation. They have transcribed most of my mom's recipe box to electronic files, but often "___" and "?" are where a measurement is meant to be. Fair warning: you will have extra of the chocolate mixture. One day, I will try reducing it to not be so wasteful, but who doesn't like licking extra batter out of the bowl? And as a bonus: no raw eggs!
Black Bottoms
makes 48

1 ½ cups flour
1 cup sugar
¼ cup cocoa
1 tablespoon white vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup oil
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla

8 ounces cream cheese
1 egg
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup sugar

1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Mix first eight ingredients together and set aside. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese, egg, salt and sugar together. Stir the chocolate chips into the cream cheese mixture. Line a miniature muffin pan with paper liners. Add 1 tablespoon of the chocolate batter and top with 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until set.
