Recipe for cupcake?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I tried a cupcake today that was FABULOUS! Of course the baker would not give me the recipe.. icon_sad.gif SO I was wondering if any of you might be able to help me come up with one similiar.

The bottom or 1/2 of the cupcake was dark chocolate cake, and the top or the other half of the cupcake was a chocolate cheesecake. Then frosted with a poof of cream cheese vanilla frosting. I did ask if the cheesecake part was baked and was told it was.

Anyone have any ideas???

Thanks!!

She won't give it to you because it is one of the hardest recipes to do. It involves having a cake batter and a cheesecake batter that not only bake perfectly together, but also bake perfectly separately.

I share almost all recipes, but not this one. It's my biggest seller and the one I'm known for.

All I can say is to just start with trial and error until you get it right. The cheesecake recipe is not like a regular cheesecake batter or cheesecake cupcake batter.

Well.... That's quite alright,... It's not like I'm baking cakes to sell anymore.
However, I wonder why you answered at all? I know why the girl that worked at the bakery would not give it to me. I certainly didn't want this person to lose her job over a recipe. It's really not important. Could someone tell me how to just delete this post?

Thanks

Was the cheesecake portion more like cake or smooth and creamy?

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

Rhonda, scp1127 responded to give you insight about the value of this recipe. She also suggested you start with trial and error, and other posters gave you a starting place. We're here to share and help. In her way, that's what scp did. And if you decide to make that recipe, hopefully you can let us know how it worked.

The cheesecake portion was very light and smooth. I have an idea forming that might work, and I may experiment this weekend.

Thank you, carmijok, Debcent, and clairesey, for responding. Let me explain something...I once decorated cakes and posted to this website quite a bit.My husband became ill and passed away in 2010, since then I've really not had the desire to bake. That's why I said the recipe wasn't that important, and why I said I'd just like to delete it.

sounds like the black bottom cheesecake recipe..cake on bottom and cheesecake on top shouldn't be hard to find it on google or in a cook book

that is a Mexican dessert called Chocoflan, i have made it before, i love it, but yes is take time. if you Google it, will see tons of recipe and you tube video about it. Some people make it as a regular round flan and some other make it into a cupcake( probably was what you got) hope this help.

Rhonda, as much as I share on CC every single recipe that I have worked on forever and the great ones I have found, I am actually irritated about your nasty comment. I even go so far as to write detailed instructions on method so that even a novice baker can pull off a complicated recipe. I can't tell you how many times I have shared my cheesecake tutorial, guaranteeing perfect cheesecakes every time. I have given out my strawberry champagne cake recipe I'm guessing 100 times.

Thank you, Mimi.

That recipe is incredibly difficult to balance and as you have seen, no answers.

My point, just like a balanced stout gingerbread, is so heavily guarded, that you can't get the answer on the world wide web. So whether you like my answer or not, it is the truth and I was trying to explain. Once that recipe is mastered, it is gold.

People like you are the reason I only share recipes in pm's. I will share with everyone except those who irritate me. And I have a gourmet recipe for practically everything.

Some of us run businesses and still share.

I am new here and thought I would check out the recipe forum. The recpie Rhonda is asking for sounds interesting. She was only asking! If people are guarded about their recipe then dont share them. People will always want to learn and grow and if someone dosnt mind sharing then thats great, if not its no big deal. I dont see why people are been quite mean about a simple inquiry about a recipe!

Happy baking everyone, try and keep it enjoyable icon_wink.gif

Thank you for this response. I'd never heard of chocoflan; I googled it and found some wonderful sounding recipes - can't wait to try!
Rhonda, my condolenses on the loss of your husband. I have not experienced that loss so I cannot truly understand what you have gone through. I hope that you are coping and that time will soften your pain.
