Chocolate Chip Cupcake Recipe

With January long gone we can all stop the clean eating charade and get back to enjoying ourselves, right? I mean, how can you be healthy if you don’t have little treats every now and again? Well, this is my new mentality and no doubt I will discuss that more in a separate post. But today I thought I would do another recipe, this time for chocolate chip cupcake deliciousness! I hunted around the web for some inspiration and combined a few ideas. However, cupcakes are pretty simple to make and these – just because they contain chocolate – should be no different.

  2. Weigh eggs and measure the butter, caster sugar and flour to the same weight as the eggs.
  3. Add eggs to the mixing bowl sieving the sugar, flour and caster sugar.
  4. Add butter, cocoa powder, chocolate chips and water.
  5. Mix with a wooden spoon until the mixture is well combined and smooth.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases and put into the oven for approximately 20 mins.
  7. Once the cakes are baked (they should be springy) let them cool on a cooling rack.
  8. To make the icing, combine all of the ingredients and mix well until smooth.
  9. Scoop the icing into a piping bag, ensuring not to put too much pressure on it, and swirl the icing onto the top of the cooled cupcakes.
  10. And finally, decorate with chocolate chips or other small chocolates!
