Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins

Muffins are one of those bakes that are slightly overlooked in favour of cupcakes but these Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins have a chocolate-based muffin studded with chocolate chips, which is then filled and baked with a very easy vanilla cheesecake. Simple but show-stopping.

125g of unsalted butter, at room temperature
150g of soft light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp of vanilla extract
175ml of soured cream or natural yoghurt
½ tsp of bicarbonate of soda
¼ tsp of sea salt
50g of cocoa powder
275g of self-raising flour

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C Fan and line a 12-hole muffin tray with tulip muffin cases.

Step 2

In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla extract and soured cream and beat again until smooth. Add the bicarbonate of soda, sea salt, cocoa powder and flour to a separate bowl and whisk to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, along with the milk, and mix with a spatula until smooth. Fold through the chocolate chips.

Step 3

Add the soft cheese to a bowl and beat with a small spatula until smooth. Add the sugar, egg and vanilla extract and beat again gently until combined.

Step 4

Add a tablespoon of cake mixture to each muffin case, then add a spoonful of cheesecake mixture on top. Add another tablespoon of cake mixture and sprinkle over the extra chocolate chips. Bake in the oven for 25-27 minutes. Leave to cool fully on a wire rack.


• You can use dark or white chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate chips if you fancy, or even any chopped flavoured chocolate.

• If you want a plain muffin, you can leave out the cheesecake mixture.
