Valentine Day Cake:Devil's Food Cupcake with Cheesecake Filling Frosting

I supposed to post this Valentine Cupcake yesterday or the day before yesterday but I was very busy with baking and decorate these cuppies and have to do others stuff at home..Well,that is life when we have family to feed and take care,right? Anyway, here am I posting this delicious cuppies adapted from Nick Malgirie baking cook..Better late then never,right? This cupcake recipe is not really sweet but that is OK with me..Furthermore, I added extra sugar into when making the cheesecake filling as icing or frosting..Wonder why I called the frosting cheesecake filling? I bought 2 pack of Kraft's New York style cheesecake filling at BJ's wholesale at a very special price.Each pack which consist of 2 boxes and each box weight is at 1 pound each .It's cost $1.99 for 2 boxes !! It's unbelievable cheap!! Actually, I plan to make cheesecake with those filling but change my mind at last minutes .I used the cheesecake filling as frosting instead since it's Valentine Day!!


Cake Batter:
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
8 tbsp(1 stick) unsalted butter,softened
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar,firmly packed
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs,room temperature
4 oz (100gm) unsweetened chocolate,melted and cool(the actual recipe is 3 oz)
3/4 cup milk or buttermilk(I used milk)
1 tsp Ovalett*optional*

*this recipe is for whole cake but I make cupcake*


100 ml heavy cream
2/3 cup sugar
1 lb Cheesecake filling
some red food coloring and sprinkle


1:Set a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 F.(180C)Prepare 2x12 muffin baking pan with paper liner.
2:Combine the flour,baking soda and salt,sifted and set aside
3:Combine butter,brown sugar and vanilla in mixer.Beat at medium speed until lightened in color and texture,3 to 5 minutes.
4:Beat in eggs,one at a time,beating well after each.Beat in the cooled chocolate and ovalett.
5:Decrease the mixer speed to lowest and add 1/3 of the flour mixture.Stop and scrape down the bowl and paddle.
6:Beat in half milk and stop and scrape the bowl and beater.
7:Repeat step #5 and #6 adding half of the flour and the remaining milk.Stop and scrape.Beat in the remaining flour mixture.
8:Increase the speed to medium and beat the batter continuously for 3 minutes.
9:Divide the batter equally between the muffin or cupcake liner.Bake for 15 minutes to 20 minutes or until the tooth pick insert comes out clean.
10:Cold in the pan for 5 minutes before remove to wire rack to cool completely.

For Frosting:

1:Combine heavy cream and sugar in mixer,beat at high speed for 10 minutes or until it's become firm,then add in cheesecake filling,beat for 30 seconds,mix well.
2:Mix your desire food coloring into the frosting first before bag the frosting in piping bag.Use any flowering decorating drop tips or star decorating tips for decorating your cupcake.

Those colorful valentine cupcakes are perfect gift! But whenever I make such cupcakes, I tend to eat as much as I can too. Then I have to visit my Jackson TN dentist because of toothaches. I thin I need to control eating sweets this time.
