Re: Chocolate-cheese cake muffin

I've never made chocolate cheese cake muffins, but chocolate cheese swirl brownies, if that would help you? Other than that, I found this recipe here that seems to be good, if you need translation help, let me know.

Re: Chocolate-cheese cake muffin

Try these Black-bottom cupcakes. I just chop up a dark chocolate bar for the mini-chips. (and if you need measurement conversions try http://www.onlineconversion.com/cooking.htm )

Black-Bottom Cupcakes

Makes 24

Do not substitute regular chocolate chips for the miniature chips. Regular chips are much heavier and will sink to the bottom of the cupcakes.

INGREDIENTS
16 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 3/4 cups sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 large egg whites, at room temperature
2 tablespoons plus 3/4 cup sour cream (creme fraiche), at room temperature
1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/3 cups water
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 standard muffin tins with cupcake liners.

2. With electric mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in medium bowl until smooth, about 30 seconds. Beat in egg whites and 2 tablespoons sour cream until combined, about 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips and set aside.

3. Whisk remaining sugar, remaining salt, flour, cocoa, and baking soda in large bowl. Make well in center, add remaining sour cream, water, butter, and vanilla and whisk until just combined. Divide batter evenly among 24 cupcake liners and top each batter with 1 rounded tablespoon cream cheese mixture. Bake until tops of cupcakes just begin to crack, 23 to 25 minutes. Cool cupcakes in tins for 10 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely. (Cupcakes can be refrigerated in airtight container for up to 2 days.)

Re: Chocolate-cheese cake muffin

One of the recipes I've tried and is a big hit among my friends and family in the US is something called "Chess Cake" - it's quite simple, using a box mix, some butter or margarine and eggs to make the "cake" part and a topping made of cream cheese (frischkäse here), sugar, eggs and vanilla, all baked together. This concept would be pretty good for making something like what you have in mind, here is a recipe:

Chocolate Chess Cake

You can make it in muffin / cupcake tins instead of a cake pan, just reduce the bake time to about 35min and it should come out fine.

I don't happen to like buying box mixes here, the American brands are too expensive (kills to pay 5chf and more for something I know I used to get for $0.99 in the US). Rather than buying, you can use the dry ingredients from a good basic chocolate cake recipe (here is one for Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake) instead of the box mix, the effect should be the same.

Re: Chocolate-cheese cake muffin

My friend in NY posted a pic of these on her Facebook page and I think I gained 10 pounds looking at them! Haven't tried them yet, but other friends have and they are good! Not muffins, cheesecake chocolate chip bars - you can find the recipe on that link,as well as lots of scrumptious pictures. Yummy. Although, it does call for graham crackers for the crust. Not sure what to substitute - maybe Butterkeks?

This sounds fab, but I'm unsure as to which ingredients to use.
Which cream cheese do you use? Philadelphia?
Where could I find said chocolate chips?
Do you think the cupcakes would be good with Migros Kakaopulver (the kind that comes in a brown can with plastic lid)?

Thanks!

Philly cream cheese, yes, and it's available in both COOP and Migros.
And for the chocolate chips, just get a bar of dark chocolate and chop it into small pieces (that's what I do anyway).
And, yes, the cocoa from Migros will do, though I use a dutched cocoa I get from the COOP (it gives it a stronger/richer chocolate flavor but won't ruin the cupcake if you don't find a dutched version).

Good luck and happy eating.

Re: Chocolate-cheese cake muffin

I wanted to start baking last night when I saw these!! Thank you sooooo very much. I am sure that I can get some sunny, yummy smiles from my friends!

I love the bars - they look so delicious and it might also not smear so much with the kids As my husband has birthday tomorrow I will make a batch of muffins and the bars to surprise him. Hahahah...I know what his breakfast is going to consist on

When I make cheese cake then I use the Petit butterkekse from the Migro and they have a Frischkäse that is also nutral and exactly the same as the Philly but for about half the price.

PS: Graham Crackers are avaible in bigger Coop shops - you have to look in the Knäckerbrot area :-)

There goes the theory that muffins are 'healthier'
