Red Velvet Cupcakes

My Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

I have been craving Red Velvet Cupcakes for days now, so I decided to bake some today.

It definitely killed the craving and so worth all the calories that set up home on my already comfy hips. 🙂

So, I thought of sharing this recipe with you. It’s delicious and so worth  making…

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons red food colouring
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 500g cream cheese, softened
  • 225g butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 170degrees C. Line 2 (12-cup) muffin pans with cupcake papers.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. In a large bowl gently beat together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food colouring, vinegar, and vanilla with a handheld electric mixer. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth and thoroughly combined.

Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake tins about 2/3 filled. Bake in oven for about 20 minutes, turning the pans once, half way through. Test the cupcakes with a toothpick for doneness. Remove from oven and cool completely before frosting. Decorate as you wish after frosting.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together until smooth. Add the sugar and on low speed, beat until incorporated. Increase the speed to high and mix until very light and fluffy.

Be awesomely blessed!
