Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ½ cups cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup light tasting oil such as grapeseed
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 2-3 drops green food coloring optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Line cupcake pans with 28 liners, and set aside.
  3. Using an electric beater, cream (beat together) the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate chips, and beat until well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Evenly distribute the batter into the lined cupcake pans, filling each liner about ¾ full, and bake for about 15 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean (or with a few crumbs).
  5. Let cool completely, then frost with Mint Chocolate Chip Frosting (recipe follows).
