Marble Cupcakes

Recently, I purchased a magazine for the Amazing Cupcakes! My son agreed to make some cupcakes with me. He elected zebra cupcakes. He told me I needed to swirl some chocolate batter into the vanilla. (I'm sure there is a better way which I will try another time.) Also, my son only agreed to make these cupcakes if I would make his concoction later. I agreed. So, my next post will be my son's creation. This cupcake is moist. I should have allowed it to cool a little longer before frosting.
Marble Cupcakes:
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
8 Tbsp butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
4 oz. milk chocolate, chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugar until fluffy.
  5. Add one egg and mix before adding the second egg.
  6. Add the vanilla and mix.
  7. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture alternating with 1/8 cup of milk. 
  8. Add another 1/3 of the flour mixture followed by another 1/8 cup of milk. 
  9. Then add the remaining flour mixture with the remaining milk.
  10. Mix until just combined. 
  11. Remove 1/3 of the batter. 
  12. Microwave the chocolate for 45 seconds. 
  13. Allow to rest for 1 minute. 
  14. Mix well. If the chocolate isn't thoroughly melted, microwave for another15 minutes and stir. 
  15. Mix the melted chocolate with the 1/3 batter to create the chocolate batter.
  16. Evenly distribute the vanilla batter between the cupcake liners. 
  17. Add a little of the chocolate batter.
  18. Swirl gently with a knife to create a marble look
  19. Bake the cupcakes for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with crumbs.
  20. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
  21. Allow to cool completely.
