Nutrition: per serving



  • 150 g Plain Flour
  • 30 g Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 150 g Sugar
  • 120 ml Oil
  • 120 ml Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 100 g Chocolate Chips

For the Frosting:

  • 200 g Unsalted Butter Softened
  • 300 g Icing Sugar
  • 50 g Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C. Also, prepare a muffin tin by lining it with cupcake liners.
  • In a mixing bowl, sieve together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until they are well combined and slightly pale.
  • Add the vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla extract into the egg mixture. Stir until the mixture becomes smooth.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until they are just combined. Be cautious not to overmix.
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling each one to about 2/3 full.
  • Place the cupcakes in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre emerges clean.
  • Once baked, take the cupcakes out of the oven and allow them to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • For the frosting, beat the softened butter until it becomes creamy and smooth.
  • Gradually add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder, mixing until they are thoroughly combined.
  • Add the milk and vanilla extract, and continue to beat until the frosting becomes light and fluffy.
  • Once the cupcakes have completely cooled, pipe or spread the frosting onto the cupcakes.
  • Optionally, you can garnish them with extra chocolate chips, sprinkles, or any other desired toppings.
