Step 1: In a large bowl, sift together the cake flour and cocoa powder. Then, whisk in baking powder, baking soda, salt, granulated sugar, espresso powder, and the chocolate chips.
Step 2: In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and sour cream until smooth. Then whisk in the melted butter, vegetable oil, melted chocolate, buttermilk, and vanilla extract.
Step 3: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently fold them together using a rubber spatula until just combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow batter to rest at room temperature for 1 hour.
Step 4: After 1 hour, preheat the oven to 425F and line a cupcake or muffin pan with 6 paper liners. Using a large cookie or ice cream scoop, scoop the batter into the muffin liners. Top each muffin with a sprinkle of sugar and extra mini chocolate chips.
Step 5: Bake for 5 minutes a 425F then lower the oven temperature to 375F and bake for an additional 15 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Allow the muffins to cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then transfer each muffin to the wire rack to cool completely.
