I always thought pudding filled cupcakes sounded like a cool idea, and one day I set about doing it. Isn't it a shame that the world is full of the same old boring cupcakes? Why not change it up a bit and try these moist and fluffy little cakes filled with creamy chocolate pudding? Instead of a simple yellow or chocolate cupcake, I made half the batter yellow cupcake and half the batter chocolate cupcake. The pretty marbled effect makes for an interesting presentation. Though this may take a little patience, it doesn't take long to get the hang of it. A light dusting of powdered sugar and some sprinkles provides the crowning touch. Count on these being the most popular cupcake at the party.

You will need:
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
dash salt
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step 1: Chocolate Pudding Filled Marbled Party Cupcakes

Step 1: In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter, cream cheese, granulated sugar, and brown sugar on medium speed until smooth.

Step 2: Gradually beat in the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt with the egg until batter looks like cookie dough.

Step 3: Beat in the vanilla extract, sour cream, and milk on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes or until smooth.

Step 4: Using a 1 1/2 inch spring-loaded cookie scoop drop a 1 1/2 inch ball/blob of batter into each paper-lined or greased muffin cup.

Step 5: After doing this with all the cupcakes you should have about half the batter left. Stir the cocoa powder into the remaining batter until smooth and blended. Using the cookie scoop, drop a 1 1/2 inch ball/blob into each cupcake like you did with the regular batter.

Step 6: Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Perfect recipe! It looks so delicious! I adore chocolate pudding and I've seent pudding in cupcakes for the first time. I would like to showcase this recipe on my <a href="http://www.cupcakesgarden.com" rel="nofollow">cupcakes recipes &amp; ideas blog</a> if you agree.
Sure- what a great idea- I'll agree! Thank you for considering me. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you but I was not notified that I got a review on this recipe.
Yum! I love chocolate, but it always nice to have a little something to break up the chocolateness of a dessert. Nice combination of flavors :)
