Chocolate Chip Cupcakes


12 cupcakes


40 minutes



– 1 cup (130 g) all–purpose flour – 1/4 cup (25 g) cocoa powder, unsweetened – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 2 large eggs, room temperature – 1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar – 1/2 cup canola oil – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract – 3/4 cup (175 ml) milk – 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips Ganache: – 1 cup (240 ml) heavy whipping cream – 1 tablespoon unsalted butter – 8 oz. (226 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 12-cup pan with cupcake paper cups. Set aside.

Step 2

Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a medium bowl. Set aside.

Step 3

Using stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment or a hand mixer, beat the eggs with sugar and oil until lightened in color, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla extract.

Step 4

 On low speed, add the flour mixture, alternating with the milk until the batter becomes smooth, about 2 minutes. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Step 5

Fill each paper cup with the batter, about 90% filled. Bake the cupcakes for 20–25 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

Step 6

 Remove the cupcakes from the pan and let cool completely on a wire rack. Prepare the Ganache.

Step 7

 Use a spatula or a piping bag to spread the ganache over the top of the cupcakes. Top the ganache with sprinkles, if you like.

Step 8

 In a medium saucepan, heat the heavy whipping cream and butter over low heat until well combined and little bubbles form on the side.

Step 9

 Remove the saucepan from heat and add the chocolate chips. Let sit for 30 seconds and then whisk until smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract. Cool completely.
