Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

It's Friday again - time for some CHOCOLATE!!!

I LOVE the simplicity of the recipe I have for you today! I found it in a little cupcake book of mine. This is the cupcake version of a chocolate chip cookie - no frosting needed! So yummy! I really like how the recipe only makes 8 cupcakes (you can double or triple recipe if needed) and it only uses 5 ingredients.

Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

7 tablespoons softened butter
1/2 cup superfine sugar (regular granulated works too)
2 large eggs
3/4 cup self-rising white flour (make your own self-rising flour)
Generous 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line muffin pan with 8 paper liners.

Put butter, sugar, eggs, and flour into large bowl and mix together with electric mixer. Beat together until just smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon the batter evenly into paper liners.

Bake cupcakes in oven for 20-25 minutes, until well risen and golden brown. Transfer to wire rack to cool.

I had to split one in half for me and hubs to try and then you know I had to split another one in half to get a decent picture. Ah - the sacrifices I make for my blog. :)

I'm linking this post up for Tasty Tuesday at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam! Go check out all the yummy recipes!
