Red Velvet Cupcakes

Perfect for special occasions, or any occasion! This classic dessert is surprisingly easy to make.

2 ½ C all-purpose flour
1 ½ C sugar
2-3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (or more, if you want!)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggsDSC02237
1 C oil
1 C buttermilk (or equivalent substitute, i.e., milk and vinegar. 1 C buttermilk = 1 C milk + 1 Tbsp white vinegar)
1 tsp white vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
2-3 tsp red food coloring

Whisk together dry ingredients: flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda

Combine wet ingredients: eggs, oil, buttermilk, vinegar, and vanilla.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, mix until smooth.

Add in desired amount of red food coloring until just combined.DSC02245

Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full.

Bake at 350 for 16-18 minutes.

Yield: 24 cupcakes (and a bit extra)

I highly recommend topping these with cream cheese frosting!
