These chocolate chip cupcakes with chocolate frosting are the perfect combination of vanilla & chocolate. Fluffy, buttery vanilla cupcakes. Chocolate chips. AND chocolate buttercream.



  • 1 1/2 cup cake flour (not self rising, all-purpose flour works too)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (1%, 2% or whole milk work too)
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4-6 tablespoons whipping cream or heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips



  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees, and line a muffin pan with muffin papers. (You’ll end up with 12-14 cupcakes total).
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder & salt.
  3. Then in a large bowl beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Then beat in the vanilla extract and eggs.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, carefully add in about 1/3 of the flour mixture followed by about 1/3 of the milk. Repeat with the rest of the flour and the milk until everything is mixed together.
  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan, filling each about 2/3 full.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then remove and continue cooling on a wire rack.


  1. In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat the butter until fluffy.
  2. Then turn the mixer to low speed and beat in 2 cups of the powdered sugar, followed by the cocoa powder. Then mix in the vanilla extract and salt.
  3. Beat in the remaining powdered sugar about 1/2 cup at a time, alternating with 1-2 tablespoons of powdered sugar until the desired consistency and sweetness is reached.
  4. Frost the cooled cupcakes using a knife or a piping bag (I used a 1M tip), then decorate with mini chocolate chips.
