Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

We love making cupcakes at home and I always use our never fail cupcake recipe each time we make them but sometimes it’s nice to have a bit of variety and so we’ve started making chocolate chip cupcakes based on the same recipe.

These are lovely to make as they don’t seem unfinished – they don’t need icing or any decorating and can be enjoyed as a tea time treat, for breakfast or just a snack. They’re perfect for any time really and the great thing is that they don’t need a specific amount of ingredients – you can make as many as you like so easily or just a small batch if you just want a few of them.


  • eggs
  • butter
  • caster sugar
  • self raising flour
  • vanilla extract
  • chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4
  • Line a muffin tin with paper cases
  • Break the eggs into a bowl and weigh them
  • Add the same weight of butter, caster sugar and self raising flour and mix well
  • Add the same weight of chocolate chips
  • Add 1tsp of vanilla extract – I use 1tsp of vanilla for every 3 eggs
  • Mix well and spoon into the paper cases
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned

    I wish I’d seen this a few days ago, Libby came home from school and announced that it was cupcake day tomorrow when I had half an hour before I had to go and catch a train. We ended up giving her some money to buy cupcakes from someone who had taken them in rather than making some ourselves but this looks like a nice quick and easy recipe that we could have managed.

    That is making me hungry. I think I’ll try making these sometime.
