Today was my husband’s birthday and what better way to celebrate than to make his favourite food which includes Red Velvet Cupcakes. This was a success (YAY!!!) My husband loved it for his birthday and so will you:)
Inspiration was from joyofbaking website. I love her recipes but I changed a couple of things around and used a ready made cream cheese frosting. Check out Stephanie’s website at http://www.joyofbaking.com for more info.
1 1/4 cups sifted cake flour (I used all purpose flour instead)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1/4 cup unsalted butter at room temp
3/4 cups granulated white sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup buttermilk ( I used regular milk)
1 tablespoon liquid red food colouring
1/2 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Cream cheese frosting:
I used a ready made frosting that I got from Walmart. It’s called Betty Crocker Whipped Cream Cheese.
First, heat your oven to 350 degrees C. Add your butter first to your mixture and allow it to mix for a minute or so. Then add your granulated white sugar as well as your egg and pure vanilla extract. Next add half of your dry ingredients and half of your red coloured milk. Mix for a couple of minutes until all ingredients are well combined. Continue adding the rest of your dry and wet ingredients and mix. In a separate bowl mix baking soda and vinegar and add it to your mixture. Pour your mixture in a cupcake tray lined with cupcake paper. Bake for about 18-23 minutes and you are done!!
