Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Cupcake & Cream Cheese Icing

1 egg
4 ounces unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup hot water
8 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces butter
1/3 cup powdered sugar

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Cupcake & Cream Cheese Icing

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and make sure the oven rack is in the center position.

  2. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper cups, and place 4 paper cups inside a second muffin tin. Add 2 tablespoons of water to each of the remaining empty muffin wells.

  3. Combine all the cupcake ingredients in a bowl, adding the water last. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Divide the batter evenly between the lined muffin cups. Bake until risen and golden in color and a toothpick inserted into the center of 1 cupcake comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

  4. To make the icing, combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Blend with a hand-held mixer until smooth and creamy.

  5. Remove from the oven and carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Using a small spatula or butter knife, spread either Vanilla or Chocolate icing onto each cupcake (using about 2 tablespoons per cupcake). If desired, place optional toppings on separate plates and dip the cupcakes into desired toppings and serve.
