Black Bottom Cupcakes

Posted on by cakefanatic

Had to share these amazing cake creations from my favourite site online – Bakerella. Whenever I need a cake fix this is the place I head. But these cupcakes are particularly amazing. Plus as they contain banana, so I use them as one of my 5 a day. 🙂 Make them as a treat for mum for mothers day, or even just because…

Cream Cheese Mixture
225g cream cheese, softened
115g caster sugar
1 small banana, pureed
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
225g semisweet chocolate chips

Chocolate Mixture
170g plain flour
40g cocoa
225g caster sugar
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large bananas, pureed
70ml oil
1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C/Gas Mark 4.
  2. For the cream cheese mixture:
    Beat cream cheese and sugar until nice and fluffy.
    Add banana, egg and vanilla and mix together until combined.
    Stir in chocolate chips and set aside.
  3. For the chocolate mixture:
    Sift together flour, cocoa, sugar, soda and salt using a wire whisk.
    Add bananas, oil and vanilla and mix together on low until combined.
    Use a large scoop to fill cupcake liners 1/2 way with batter.
    Repeat topping the cupcake batter with the cream cheese mixture.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until done.

Makes about 18 cupcakes. Yummy!
