Cheesecake Muffins


75g cream cheese
2 tablespoons caster sugar
2 cups plain flour
3/4 cups chocolate chips (about 100g)
1/2 cup caster sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
60g butter, melted
1 cup milk
Dark brown sugar, for sprinkling (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 190 C. Prepare a muffin tray - either line with paper cases or grease well. Beat cream cheese and 2 tablespoons caster sugar together, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, chocolate chips, 1/2 cup caster sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  3. Make a well in the centre. Mix egg, butter and milk together, and pour into the well. Stir until just moist.
  4. Spoon some chocolate batter into each muffin case (1 generous tablespoon) and drop 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture on top. Cover with another heaped tablespoon of chocolate batter. This will form the cheesecake centre. (Yum!)
  5. Sprinkle some dark brown sugar over the tops of the muffins, and bake in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes, or until springy to touch.
