IMG_3372Recipe for Choc Chunk Cookie Cupcakes


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/3 cup whole milk

8 ounces semisweet chocolate, cut into 1/2-inch chunks


Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line 2 standard 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners; set aside. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

Put butter and sugars into the bowl and mix with electric beater until pale and fluffy. Mix in eggs, 1 at a time, and vanilla. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture in 2 batches, alternating with the milk. Stir in chocolate chunks with a rubber spatula.


Spoon 1/4 cup batter into each muffin cup. Bake until pale golden and a cake tester inserted into centers comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Transfer cupcakes to wire racks; let cool completely.


Cupcakes ready. Happy Munching!
