Cream Cheese Filled Chocolate Muffins


1 person made this

This is a muffin that gives the eater a little cream cheese surprise in the middle. The recipe is for large sized muffins which work better when using a filling.


Serves: 12 

  • 275g plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 130g caster sugar
  • 80ml neutral oil
  • 300g buttermilk
  • Filling
  • 100g cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 drop vanilla essence, to taste

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. In a bowl sift in the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa. Mix.
  3. In a large bowl crack in the egg and whisk it. Add the 130g of sugar, oil and buttermilk; mix well.
  4. Combine the 2 bowls together while mixing.
  5. Filling: In a bowl carefully mix the cream cheese, caster sugar and vanilla.
  6. Grease a muffin tray or line with muffin cases.
  7. Fill each muffin case just over half then add the filling; a big teaspoon for every muffin. Put the rest of the mixture on top so the filling is completely surrounded.
  8. Bake in the middle of the oven for 20-25 minutes. Afterwards if you're not using baking cases, let the muffins cool for 5-10 minutes in the moulds before removing.


Buttermilk! I had this trouble too, if you stock up and prepare you should be able to find it in your local supermarket. But if you work on a whim like I tend to: For each 250ml of fresh milk, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar.
