"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

8oz. cream cheese
1/3 c. sugar
1 egg
Pinch salt
6oz. semi sweet chocolate chips

3 c. flour
2 c. sugar
4 T. cocoa
2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
2 c. water
2 T. cider vinegar
2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. oil

To make filling, place softened cream cheese, egg, sugar and salt in bowl, beat until smooth. Stir in chips, set aside.
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Add remaining liquid ingredients. Beat for 2 minutes on medium. If you are doing cupcakes, fill each cup 1/2 full with batter and drop about 1/2 T. filling in each. For a cake, pour into a greased and floured 9x13 pan and drop spoonfuls of the filling all over the cake. For cupcakes bake 25-30 minutes at 350. For cake bake 45 to 60 minutes at 350. When cool, sift powdered sugar over the top or frost with chocolate frosting for a real chocolate treat!
