Chocolate chip cupcakes

I made this fresh batch of cupcakes for my niece’s birthday! Kids always love this delectable treat. They are moist and chocolatey. Here’s my recipe for you to try:


  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
For the icing:
* 4 egg whites
* 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
*1/2 c. water
*1 1/3 c white sugar
Optional: chocolate chips and sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk; beat well. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full.
  3. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Frost with your favorite frosting when cool.

Procedure for the icing:

1. beat the egg yolks and cream of tartar til light & fluffy.

2. In a separate sauce pan, dissolve the sugar in water until mixture becomes ‘thready’.

3. Beat the egg yolks and tartar in full speed while pouring the dissolved sugar and water mixture.

*Coloring is optional.

I hope you enjoy these delicious cupcakes! Happy Holidays!
