Chocolate Cheesecake Cup Cake

I am so loving playing with cups!  My boys love it too.  They get to eat all the fun!  These are the perfect size for individual servings.  Everyone gets to create their own cakes!  I even refrigerated leftover cake mix last night and baked more today.  Try these with whatever you have on hand to fill them with.  I tried cheesecake in one and it was great.  The plain one was moist!  Add chocolate chips, m&m's, nuts, preserves, get it, don't you?  I'll see you 'round the microwave!  <3 and hugs!

ingredients to make cake according to directions
fillings of your choice
16 oz cup

Cheesecake Filling

8 oz neufchatel cream cheese  
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla, optional

Mix in bowl until fluffy.  

Mix cake according to directions.  Spray cup.  Add 1/2, more of less, cup cake mix.  I just used a regular tablespoon and added three heaping spoonful.  Add tablespoon of filling, more or less, there are really no set amounts.  Cook in microwave, mine is 1100 watts) for 40 seconds.  It should be soft yet set when touched.  Run knife around edge and plate.  Add your favorite toppings.  I just used the homemade chocolate syrup I made the other day. 

This is a plain one.  Very moist and really didn't need the chocolate syrup, but it was requested.

Pineapple Upside Down Cup Cake

A couple of days ago I saw an article in our newspaper about cooking in a cup.  Did you happen to see that?  I was intrigued by this as my family is getting to be so very Picky lately!!  This will be perfect for me.  I can cook what is wanted.  Really wanted.  It's just that easy!  No waste when everyone wants something different.  Here is one of the "cup cakes" I have made.  Play around and make up your own.  I'd love for you to share on my page.  Have fun and enjoy!
