4oz (120g) butter, softened
6oz (170g) superfine (caster) sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
9oz (250g) self-raising flour, sifted
4fl oz (125ml) buttermilk
7oz (200g) white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325F(170C).
Line cupcake trays with cupcake papers.
Put butter and sugar in the medium bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and fluffy (approx 5 minutes).
Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each addition.
Add the vanilla.
Fold through the flour, alternately with buttermilk, and stir until well combined.
Stir through the chocolate chips.
Spoon mixture into cupcake trays.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
Leave in trays for five minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Frost if desired.
Thanks so much for sending in your gourmet cupcake recipe.
I would imagine it would keep really well and be quite light in texture.
This cupcake could be teamed up with so many frostings and would be great served as wedding cupcakes.
Thanks again for sharing your recipe.
