  • 1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

Preheat oven to 375°. Line 24 standard muffin cups with paper liners.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar until pale and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in vanilla.

Reduce mixer speed to low. Add flour in two batches, alternating with milk. Stir in chocolate chunks.

Spoon 1/4 cup batter into each muffin cup. Bake 20 minutes, or until cupcakes are pale golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer cupcakes to wire racks to cool.

Makes about 2 dozen cupcakes.
