Red Velvet Cupcakes

Makes 11 to 12


Ingredients:
1 cup of all Purpose Flour
2 Tbsp of Cocoa Powder
tsp of Baking Powder
tsp of Baking Soda
tsp of Salt
cup of Unsalted Butter, softened at room temperature
cup of Granulated sugar
cup of Buttermilk
1 Egg
1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
Red food Coloring

For the frosting,

2 Cups of Powdered Sugar
4 oz of Cream Cheese, softened at room temperature
2 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter, softened at room temperature
1 Tbsp of Milk
1 tsp of Vanilla Extract

Process,

1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners and set aside.

2) In a small bowl mix together the first 5 ingredients and set aside.In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the sugar and butter, add the egg and vanilla and mix until well combined and creamy.

3) With the mixer running on low, add half of the dry ingredients and half of the buttermilk, make sure its combined and add the remaining dry ingredients and buttermilk making sure to combine everything together but not over mixing.Using a spatula mix the batter from the bottom to make sure nothing is left stuck to the side of the bowl, add enough food coloring to get the desired red color for your cupcakes.

4) Using a large ice cream scoop, scoop the batter evenly in your prepared pan and bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until when you insert a toothpick in the center it comes out clean.Let the cupcakes cool completely.

5) To make the frosting simply put all the frosting ingredients into the bowl of an electric mixer and mix until well combined and it has the consistency of a thick frosting.Frost the cupcakes either with a little spatula or using a disposable piping bag fitted with a plain large tip.

6) Let cool in the fridge for about 10 to 15 minutes to set a little before serving (if you can resist them anyway)

Enjoy!
