Chocolate chip cupcakes

    Hi friends, yes missed blogging for so long time.  All this time, has been spent well with improvising my cooking skills, and specially BAKING <3  My hubby has promised me another bigger model of OTG, next month, so YAY excited.  You can definitely stay tuned for more cakey recipes then.  So, chalo let's move to our post. There are two types of Baking, we can see in any forum - one will be completely catchy and fancy with fondant and icing, and keeps the promise to inspire any layman into baking, other type is nothing fancy, but simple baked treats which is an whole hearted meal by itself and serves as an comfort food.  Yes, our post falls on later, Heavenly Chocolate chip cupcakes, which is an perfect accompaniment to our Tea-time.

These simple treats are yum, and best served warm.  And the best part of this recipe is that, these are made of maida and an part of wheat flour, giving them an additional healthy quotient as an uplift.  They  make an great option for your kids snack break as well.  You can refrigerate and consume them within five days, but please do microwave/reheat for an warm super yum treat.
