• 100g of nonsalted butter/margarine
  • 100g of caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 100g of self raising flour
  • 100g of chocolate chips (what ever ones you want)
  • Half a tbs of vanilla essence
  • Icing sugar (for topping)


  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas mark 5. Prepare your cupcake tray with the cases needed.
  • STEP 2
    Put the butter/margarine in with the caster sugar and use an electric whisk to beat until light and fluffy.
  • STEP 3
    Slowly whisk in the eggs a bit at a time so that they don't curdle. Once fully whisked add the vanilla essence.
  • STEP 4
    Sift the flour into the mixture and fold it using a spatula so as to get all of the flour mixed. Once consistent, add the chocolate chips and fold them in as well.
  • STEP 5
    Use two tea spoons to spoon the mixture into the cases until they're 3/4 full. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes, check regularly with a cocktail stick (if they are undercooked the cocktail stick will come out with mixture on it). Once cupcakes are done place on a cooling rack until cool.
  • STEP 6
    Dust with icing sugar and enjoy!
