  • 4Bake 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Spread frosting over cake. Store covered in refrigerator.
  • 5LYNN'S TIP: This recipe would be great maked into cupcakes. Follow recipe only split batter and filling into 20-24 cupcake liners in muffin tins. Bake for 20 minutes. Frost with knife or use decorator's bag and swirl frosting with a decorator's tip. sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and nuts, if desired

    As for putting cream cheese filling into cupcakes and swirling..it says above to add 1 tablespoon all over the cake batter; for cupcakes I would use about 1/2 Tablespoon per cupcake..eyeball it to make sure you split the cream cheese mixture to be able to get enough on each cupcake.
