Black Bottom Cupcakes with Goat Cheese

Goat cheese you say?  Yes, goat cheese for Cupcake Project’s new twist on an old favorite.  Using goat cheese instead of cream cheese gives these gems a little extra tang so they aren’t too sweet.  They are just right.

Black Bottom Cupcakes with Goat Cheese

Cake Ingredients
  • 2 C flour

  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 3/4 C butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/3 C sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 C plain yogurt
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/3 C milk
  • 5 oz baking chocolate, melted
For goat cheese topping
  • 8 oz goat cheese (I used Ile de France goat cheese, but any non-flavored goat cheese would work)

  • 2 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Whisk flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in eggs, yogurt, vanilla, and milk until blended.
  4. Alternately fold in flour mixture and melted chocolate, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
  5. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full.
  6. In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients for the goat cheese topping.
  7. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the topping onto the center of each cupcake.
  8. Bake at 350 F for thirty minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry.
