Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

1 3/4 c. cake flour
1 1/4 c. unbleached all-purpose flour
2 c. granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 c. unsalted butter, softened, cut into cubes
4 large eggs
1 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. miniature chocolate chips

3/4 c. unsalted butter, melted
1 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
4 1/2 c. confectioners' sugar
1/2 c. milk, or more as needed
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line cupcake pans with paper liners; set aside.

For the cupcakes, in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, sift together flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt; mix together until combined. Add butter cubes, mixing until coated with flour.

In a large glass measuring cup, whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. With mixer on medium speed, add wet ingredients in three parts, scraping down sides of bowl after each addition; beat until ingredients are incorporated, but do not over-beat. Stir in miniature chocolate chips.

Divide batter evenly among liners, filling halfway to two-thirds full. Bake in preheated oven, rotating pans after 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 17 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting, in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine melted butter and cocoa. Alternately add confectioners' sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency. Add small amount of additional milk, if needed. Stir in vanilla extract. Generously frost cupcakes.

Yield: 24 cupcakes
