Double Chocolate Chip Cup Cakes

I found this recipe on the Annabel Karmel website and decided to try it to keep little man entertained while we emptied the house ready for our move! Plus little man has been invited to a birthday party and they are not providing egg free cakes. Unfortunately I have lent out the cake pop maker so will be trying this as a cupcake recipe. This makes 12 cupcakes.
They didn't sink! Yeah. 


  • 145g sifted plain flour 
  • 150g caster sugar (or vanilla sugar) 
  • 20g nice quality cocoa powder 
  • 62g vegetable oil 
  • 175ml water 
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 
  • small pinch of salt 
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 
  • 100g of choc chips


  • pre-heat oven to 180C / gas mark 4. 
  • Set out the cupcake cases
  • In a bowl, sift the flour, bicarb of soda, salt and cocoa powder. Mix well. 
  • Add sugar and mix well 
  • Add oil, water, choc chips and vanilla essence and mix well
  •  Pour into cupcakes 
  • Cook for approx 22 mins


Original recipe says it serves about 6, so I'm guessing a 8" tin, and says to grease a tin and pour in to the baking tin/ring and bake for 1 hour in the middle of the oven or until a knife inserted in to the centre comes out clean.
These tasted a little funny to us... The taste of bicarbonate of soda seemed to come through. Will be trying again with self raising flour or adding some orange/lemon juice to balance it out. I think even a bit of vinegar would help.
