Cream-Filled Chocolate Supreme Muffins

Because of her reputation for yummy things, Mom used to sell muffins at my dad's workplace. Among my favorites were these luscious cupcake-like treats. —Libby Spicker, North Ogden, Utah

    The cake batter makes more like 24 cupcakes. But the filling was enough for 12.

    I thought they were good, but mom and dad said they tasted like burnt chocolate. I think it must be the vinegar.

    My teenaged son and his friends rave over these muffins. They request it every time they have a sleepover. I also add 3T expresso powder to the dry ingredients to intensify the chocolate flavor.

    Muffins tasted much better once they cooled. I would now give them 4 stars.

    I liked the cream filling, but the vinegar gave the chocolate part a peculiar burnt taste.

    Excellent taste. Chocolatey, but not overwhelming.
