Devil's food cupcakes

Baking is similar to working out. Both needs  momentum. I always enjoy learning new sweet treats. I decided to bake Devil's Food cake. I know how sinful this dessert is. Oh well, life is too short to be eating healthily all the time. Pamper yourself once a week. I hope it is not too much to ask for. I adapted the recipe from . If you refer to the recipe, I omit the frosting. Instead, I topped the batter with chocolate chips.
Note: Due to the addition of buttermilk, baking soda and baking power, the batter can really rise and spill over the cupcake liners like volcanoes eruption... So, please put in the batter only half full, not 3/4 full. Inexperienced baker I am, that's why... :P There won't be a second time. I can taste the baking soda in the cake too, so probably I should omit baking soda totally (since I added buttermilk) or reduce to 1 teaspoon instead of two next time. The cupcake was moist and really yummy with some chocolate chips topping and chopped walnuts. The recipe is definitely a keeper.
Bon Appetit!
