Toddler approved Chocolate Chip Cupcakes
One of Megha’s favorite snacks of late is cupcakes. Almost every day she asks me for them but I try to bake them only on weekends so that she is not loaded with sugar.
Last week I baked chocolate chip cookies for everyone at the daycare; just to surprise Megha J
She loved the cupcakes!
Here is the recipe: Taken from Taste.com.au
· 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
· 125g butter, softened
· 3/4 cup caster sugar
· 3 eggs
· 1/4 cup milk
· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
· 3/4 cup dark choc-chips
Note: Since mine were mini cupcakes, I took it out of the oven around 18 minutes as they were starting to turn golden color. They turned out perfect.
For Muffins, follow 25 mins baking time.
· Step 1
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Line a 12-hole, 1/3 cup-capacity muffin pan with paper cases.
· Step 2
Sift flour into a bowl. Add butter, sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Using an electric mixer, beat mixture on low for 1 minute or until combined. Increase speed to medium. Beat for 2 minutes or until pale and smooth. Fold in choc-chips. Spoon into prepared muffin holes.
· Step 3
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and a skewer inserted in center of 1 cupcake comes out clean. Stand in pan for 5 minutes. Turn out onto on a wire rack to cool.
