Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

For those of you who have been following my blog, you might have noticed that I have taken a new interest, that is baking.  Honestly speaking, after my few quite successful (ahem...) in baking, I am thrilled as well as my family.
Even my friends are excited (cos' they got to be my guinea pigs besides my family!) and their expression would be like "Wow, you can BAKE???" or "Never know you have interest in baking..... blah..blah....".
I have also tried various cupcakes which is very easy and even my girls have no problem trying their hands in it.  This Chocolate Chip Cupcakes is my first cupcakes experience and we like it very much.  Since then, we have fun creating different flavor of cupcakes according to our palate and stay tuned for more cupcakes to come.

Recipe source : Wokking Mum (with minor modification)
Ingredients :
- 220 gm butter (soften)
- 180 gm sugar
- 4 eggs
- 220 gm self-raising flour
- 150 chocolate chip
- 1tsp vanilla
Method :
1)  Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
2)  Add 1 egg at a time and continue beating.
3)  Add vanilla and mix well.
4)  Add in flour and beat well till mixture is smooth and pale.
5)  Fold in chocolate chip till combined.
6)  Spoon batter into muffin cups.
7)  Bake for 20 minutes in pre-heat oven at 180 Celcius.
8)  Cool on rack.
Easy peasy cupcakes 
Great to serve it for breakfast or tea time
