My Chocolate Cheese Cupcake

It has been a while.... Cik Ngah 'cuti' baking and cooking due to health reason. Cik Ngah was missing cooking and baking so much! But what to do? 

Last Saturday marked the 52th day after Cik Ngah operation and Cik Ngah felt like baking again. So I started with this recipe that uses cream cheese as Cik Ngah need to finish the cream cheese stock in the fridge.
