Chocolate Cup Cupcake

I'm embarrassed to admit it but quite recently I've been a cookie monster, baking and eating batches of cookies one after another, of course my favorite kind of cookies are chocolate chip cookies. Baked freshly out of the oven, accompanied by tall glass of milk. Delicious! ^_^ This must be the side effect of hoarding Callebaut soft baked chocolate chips. This week I promised myself that no more, I have to try something new. Well... Guess what I made?
Yup! you guessed it. It's a Chocolate Chip Cupcake!
I got this off Elinor Klivans Cupcakes! book, this is my go to book for all my cupcake cravings. The recipes are great so far everything I made from this book taste good. It is also peppered with gorgeous, mouthwatering pictures that will surely inspire you to give it a try. The procedure started out a bit different from your usual cupcake recipe, in this version the butter is mixed in with the flour till resembles a course meal. Just like making a pie! Haha... A tip though once you measured out the flour get a tablespoon or two and gently toss it with the chocolate chips until the chips are lightly coated. Do this trick so that the chips would not settle on the bottom as the cupcakes are baking. Turned out great! The end product truly taste like a chocolate chip cookie only in cakey texture. Although I really have no idea is making it the old fashioned way would change the texture and the outcome of this cupcake. But hey if it ain't broke don't fix it right?


I'm a nine to five pencil pusher who loves to play with flour and paper during my free time. Dreams of going to Europe and eat croissants and make pastries all day long!


  1. These look delicious. Great combination cupcakes with chocolate chips. Yum!

  4. Wonderful looking muffins. I came looking for SMS sugar cookies,and saw these!
    I hear you on the cookie baking..I have been baking and eating way to many the last week. My jeans were feeling a tad bit snug yesterday..that did not make me happy!
    Try the sugar cookies if you haven't all ready. They are good if you add some extra ingredients.

  5. Oh wow, these look fabulous!!! Chocolate chip cookies are my DH's favorite, I make them all the time. I love the idea of it in a cupcake form.
