Pure comfort—pair this classic cupcake with a glass of cold, refreshing milk.
Pre-heat oven to 180°C/350°F. Add flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking powder to a large bowl and mix. Mix milk with vanilla extract and vegetable oil. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until a smooth batter forms.
Stir in chocolate chips, then portion batter into a lined muffin tin using an ice cream scoop.
Bake for approx. 20 min., or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs. Set aside to cool.
Cream butter. Add vanilla sugar and salt and beat to combine. Slowly sift in confectioner’s sugar bit by bit. As soon as confectioner’s sugar is fully combined, add cream and beat until fluffy. Frost cupcakes and decorate with sprinkles as desired. Enjoy!
