Red Velvet Cupcakes (picked by Everyday Insanity)
These are made slightly different than my pink velvet cupcakes which have oil instead of butter. I would have to say that these oil based ones are better. But I'll let you be the judge of that :)
2 1/2 cups cake flour sifted
2 tablespoons unsweetened dutch-process cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups veggie oil
2 lg eggs room temp
1/2 teaspoon red gel-paste food color
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk room temp
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
The How To
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together sifted cake flour, cocoa, and salt.
|I also used some black cocoa to enhance the chocolate flavor.|
In the bowl of a stand mixer whisk together sugar and oil on medium-high speed until combined. Add eggs one at a time, beating until each is incorporated. Mix in food color and vanilla.
|Yes this is a JUMBO cupcake :) |
Add about 5-7mins to your bake for these larger ones.
