How to Make Chocolate Chip Cupcakes


  • 1Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 6 cup standard muffin pan with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and sugar, then add the chocolate chips. In a small mixing bowl, combine the egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and stir until just moistened.
  • 2Divide the mix among the prepared muffin cups. Bake until the tops spring back when lightly tapped, 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • 3For the frosting, put the chocolate, cream and butter in a heatproof bowl over but not touching a pan of simmering water. Stir gently over low heat until smooth. Chill until firm but spreadable, then pipe or spread over the cooled cupcakes.
