Red Velvet Cupcakes
adapted from Sprinkle Bakes! 
Yield: 24 cupcakes | Bake Time: 19-21 min | Oven Temp: 350deg 

What you need:

  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 2 cups of sugar 
  • 1 cup butter, softened 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder 
  • 1 ½ tbsp liquid red food coloring 
  • 1 cup buttermilk 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • ½ tsp baking soda 
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar

Quickie Instructions:

  1. Take a small bowl and whisk together the flour and salt 
  2. Take a large bowl and cream the butter and sugar together. Add eggs one at a time, and then vanilla.
  3. Alternate adding flour and buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour (this is what Heather said on her blog, I don’t understand the huge point of doing this, but I trust her judgement)
  4. In a separate dish, mix the cocoa powder and red food coloring until it creates a paste. Add the paste into the mixture.
  5. Mix the baking soda and cider vinegar and as it’s foaming, mix it into the cake mix.
  6. Bake for roughly 20 minutes, and enjoy!
