Grandma Gudgel's Black Bottom Cupcakes

My husband’s Grandmother used to make these cupcakes every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. They became a family favorite. I was asked this year to make these in honor of her memory. They are very delicious with a nice cream cheese surprise in the center!
