  • 120 g Cake / Top Flour
  • 20 g Sugar
  • 30 g Brown Sugar / Demerara Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 60 g Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 50 g Egg
  • 60 g Buttermilk* / Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 90 g Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat oven to 180C. Add vanilla into buttermilk and set aside.
  • Place softened butter in mixing bowl. Whisk the butter slightly with handheld mixer or whisk.
  • Add in both sugar. Whisk till butter mixture turn pale and light in color.
  • Add in egg in 3 batches. Mix well with each addition.
  • Sift flour and baking powder into mixture above. Using a spatula, fold in 1/2 of the flour lightly.
  • Add 1/2 portion of the buttermilk into the batter above. Ensure that you mix well.
  • Add in remaining flour and mix well. Add in the remaining buttermilk and mix well.
  • Reserve about 1/4 portion of chocolate chips. Add in the rest of the chocolate chips into batter. Mix in lightly.
  • Spoon batter into 6 muffin cups (near to the brim of the cups; about 90% full). Add reserved chocolate chips on the top of the batter. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 20-23 mins.
  • Cool completely on wire rack before storing in airtight container.


* For the sugar, you can use all caster sugar. I like to also use brown sugar for added taste. This time I have used demerara sugar as it is unrefined sugar which may be better for kids.
* You can DIY your own buttermilk by placing 3/4 tsp of vinegar into a bowl, and top up with milk to 60g. Let it curdle for about 5 mins before using.
