We have a complete list below for you to help you make the perfect black bottom cupcakes. Let’s get straight into our list now! 

1. Black Bottom Cupcakes

First up, we have this decadent and gooey recipe you are sure to love! These black bottom cupcakes (see also ‘10 Of The Best Thanksgiving Cupcakes You Have To Make Right Now‘) are filled with chocolate chip cream cheese and are made in five easy steps!

They do take a little longer to make than other cupcakes, with a total time of one hour, but they are worth the wait! 

You get 24 delicious cupcakes with this recipe that mixes the indulgent chocolate flavor with the creamy cream cheese perfectly!

We recommend leaving them to set fully before you tuck in to cement the flavors and allow the cream cheese to set. 

Most of the ingredients are easy to find and affordable too! We didn’t have cider vinegar when we made the cupcakes and substitute lemon juice.

It worked just as well, so you don’t need to worry if you can’t find cider vinegar! 

2. Easy Black Bottom Cupcakes

Any recipe advertised as easy grabs our attention, and this black bottom cupcake recipe did not disappoint (see also ‘10 of the Best Dog Cupcakes You Have to Make Right Now‘)!

The fluffy cupcakes are super easy to make and are packed full of cocoa powder to give you a wonderful chocolate flavor.

This compliments the cream cheese filling perfectly, giving you a deliciously rich cupcake!

They are fairly quick to make too, with a cook time of thirty minutes. You can whip these up in no time!

The recipe is super easy to follow too, just make sure you leave the cupcakes to cool completely before you serve them. 

The recipe calls for mini chocolate chips, but you can use standard chocolate chips if you can’t find mini ones.

The recipe even has a conversion for you that shows you how many chips you should use depending on the size of them! 

3. Vegan Black Bottom Cupcakes

We have the perfect recipe for the vegans in the room! These black bottom cupcakes are vegan and super tasty! You’d never tell they are vegan when you bite into these rich and gooey cupcakes. 

The recipe offers you three egg replacements to choose from too, allowing you to find the right substitution for you!

We used aquafaba and had excellent results! Just be mindful as it can turn the cake into a self-frosted cupcake, which isn’t to everyone’s taste.

You can always use a different egg replacement if this doesn’t sound appealing to you! 

4. Pumpkin Black Bottom Cupcakes

These cupcakes are perfect for Fall! The pumpkin spice adds a wonderful taste to the cupcakes, adding plenty of flavor to them!

It also makes them perfect for Halloween parties! You get spooky-looking cupcakes with wonderful flavor, what more could you want?

These cupcakes are also grain-free and vegan too, making them perfect for anyone with allergies. They are a real crowd-pleaser to serve at a party.

The cupcakes are also super easy to make! The recipe breaks down the steps into small chunks that even a novice baker can follow with ease. 

5. Gluten-Free Black Bottom Cupcakes

Next, we have these delicious gluten-free black bottom cupcakes for you to try.

Not only is the recipe gluten-free, but you can make it vegan easily too, by swapping out the egg for a replacement. The recipe has options for you to follow too! 

Making these cupcakes is a breeze too thanks to the use of gluten-free pudding mix! You can achieve fantastic cupcakes that are light and fluffy with minimal effort on your part.

There are plenty of modifications you can make too, and the recipe has all the conversions listed for you, so you don’t need to do any calculations. 

Simply follow the recipe and you can enjoy delicious gluten-free cupcakes! 

6. Low-Carb Black Bottom Cupcakes

If you are following a low-carb diet, you can still enjoy cupcakes! This delicious black bottom cupcake recipe is the one for you.

It’s also a great recipe if you are watching your sugar intake. Instead of sugar, sweetener and xanthan gum are used to create a sweet taste and texture. 

These cakes still taste sweet, indulgent, and gooey. Your guests would never know you haven’t added sugar to the recipe!

We suggest mixing the almond and coconut flour together and sieving them with a fine sieve when making the cupcakes.

This helps to remove any and all lumps, saving you time when it comes to mixing! It also helps to create a smooth and fluffy texture. 

7. Black Bottom Cupcakes

If you want a fudgy black bottom cupcake, this is the recipe for you! These cupcakes always turn out moist and melt in your mouth.

When you bite into the cake, you would never guess how easy they are to make! These are far more gooey and fudgy than others on today’s list, so give them a go if you want a truly decadent cupcake! 

For the cream cheese filling, the recipe calls for full-fat cream cheese rather than a spreadable one.

We recommend that you leave the cream cheese to warm to room temperature before you start baking.

Cold cream cheese doesn’t spread as well and can leave you with lumps in the filling, no one wants that! 

8. Hummingbird Black Bottom Cupcakes

Hummingbird Bakery always has fantastic recipes, and their black bottom cupcakes are no exception! These decadent and dark cupcakes are wonderful for an afternoon snack or to serve at a party.

Instead of a simple cream cheese filling, the recipe calls for a cheesecake baked into the cupcakes! How indulgent does that sound? 

The cupcakes are then topped with a cream cheese frosting, sealing in the cheesecake. It’s a wonderful surprise to bite into this seemingly innocent chocolate cupcake and be met with a cheesecake filling! 

As there is a cheesecake (see also ‘15 Delicious Cheesecake Cupcakes You’ll Love To Make!‘) filling, there are more steps to this recipe than other ones on our list. However, these extra steps are worth it!

The recipe is simple to follow too, so although it’s more work, it won’t feel like hard work! 

9. Simple Black Bottom Cupcakes

A simple recipe is right up our street, just like this black bottom cupcake recipe! These cupcakes are not only easy to make but delicious too!

The rich cream cheese works wonderfully with the chocolate cupcakes and looks like you put a lot of effort into these cupcakes when really they are simple to make. 

You get plenty of cupcakes from this recipe too, with 30 servings from one bowl! What more could you want?

Make sure you leave the cream cheese to warm to room temperature before you start backing and you are sure to have a stress-free experience. 

10. Black Bottom Banana Cupcakes

Finally, we have these black bottom banana cupcakes. Not only are these cupcakes delicious, but they are low in fat and are vegan!

You get the same taste as a traditional black bottom cupcake, but without the high fat content, these cupcakes can often have. 

Instead of using vegan cream cheese, bananas are used to create a creamy center. If you don’t enjoy vegan cream cheeses, then this is a wonderful substitution.

It is also far cheaper than purchasing cream cheese! It might sound a little odd, but trust us, it works! Just make sure you use ripe bananas (with brown spots) for best results.
