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
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 1/2 ounces dark chocolate, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 9 ounces low-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 1/2 ounces raspberry compote


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  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.
