Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cupcakes

2015-10-15 17.26.37This was my favorite cupcake growing up.  I just loved when my mom made them.  We actually called them Blackbottom Cupcakes but since we don’t put the batter on the bottom Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cupcakes seems like a better name to me.

I can’t believe I haven’t tried making them gluten free before now.  These cupcakes are moist, not over chocolaty and have the best surprise at the bottom….chocolate chip cheesecake!  They are so easy, you’ll want to make them again and again, too.
