Self Filling Goodness!

I love to collect cookbooks, and have well over 50 of them to read over and test! Most I pick up at my local libraries cookbook swap.

By far my favorites are the old ones published and created by local  churches and small hometown communities.

I gave this one a test run over the weekend and thought I would share the recipe that is! And I got to try out my cute new hand mixer.
Self Filling Cupcakes taken from Garvin County Bicentennial Recipe Book circa 1976.

1 package cake mix {Deluxe Devil Food}
1 8oz. cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 16oz. package of semi sweet chocolate chips

Mix cake according to package directions; put baking cups in muffin pan. Fill 2/3 full. Cream the cheese with the sugar beat in egg and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop rounded teaspoon of mixture in cake batter. Bake as cake directs.

These were fast and easy and fabulous delicious!
I was surprised to see that not one of them showed any signs of what was tucked inside. I chose to leave mine plain, due to the treat on the inside. However, a nice layer of butter cream would be great too.

I will be linking up at all these great blogs today Tempt My Tummy - Tuesday at the Table -Tasty Tuesday
