Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

I have always been wanting to try out cupcakes but never got around to making them till now. I wonder why because they really are so simple to make.

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
½ cup oil
¼  cup water
2 large eggs
2 tbsp yogurt
1 tsp vanilla essence
50 gms chocolate chips
4 tbsp cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 175⁰C
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, water and oil with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined.
Mix in the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt .
Alternately add the vanilla essence and the yogurt, beating on low speed until mixed..
Fill cups ¾ full with the mixture. Sprinkle the top with chocolate chips.
Bake for about 18 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched.
Cool on racks for 5 minutes before removing from pans.
