Valentine’s Day: Red Velvet Cupcakes

Valentine’s Day is in three days! Some times the best gifts are the ones made with love; Here is a delicious red velvet cupcake recipe for you to try at home!


This recipe is one of my favorites. It makes 12 cupcakes

First what you want to do is preheat your oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F) and line your cupcake tray with cupcake liners.

Secondly you will mix all your dry ingredients together: 1 1/4 C flour, 3/4 C sugar, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp cocoa powder. Now set this aside

In a mixing bowl add the following ingredients: 3/4 C vegetable oil, 1/2 C buttermilk*, 1 egg, 1 tbsp of red food coloring, 1/2 tsp of white vinegar, and 1 tsp of vanilla

*to make buttermilk all you need is a little under 1 cup of milk and 1 tbsp of lemon juice OR vinegar. add them together and let it stand for five minutes and then use as much as you need

After your whisk those ingredients together, add the dry ingredients in parts mixing in between

Pour the batter into your lined cups (about 3/4 full) and place it in the oven for 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Cream cheese frosting goes great with red velvet cupcakes and it is my favorite

To make you’ll need 8 oz of cream cheese, 1/2 cup of butter, 2 cups powdered sugar and 2 tsp vanilla. whisk the cream cheese and butter together first and then gradually add the powdered sugar and lastly add the vanilla.
