Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins With Raspberries

These may seem like ordinary chocolate muffins on the outside, but they're hiding a fruity cream cheese center.



  • 4 eggs, divided
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 ½ oz dark chocolate, melted
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 9 oz low-fat cream cheese
  • ½ vanilla bean
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 ½ oz raspberry compote

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a bowl, combine 3 eggs, milk, sugar, butter and melted chocolate. Stir in flour, cocoa and baking powder.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the cream cheese, 1 egg, sugar, vanilla bean, lemon peel and cornstarch.
  4. Grease the muffin tin with butter and dust it with flour. Add some chocolate batter to each muffin cup and use a spoon to make a space in the center. Add a dollop of cheesecake filling in the middle and some raspberry compote on top.
  5. Dilute the rest of the chocolate dough with a little milk and pour over each muffin.
  6. Bake for approx 15 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
