A visit to J.Ana's blog reminds me that I had a pending recipe entry for red velvet cupcake. I made it last May and I forget all about it.

If you want to try it, I listed down the recipe.

To make this you'll need;
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 oz red food coloring
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

Then; Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and beat for 30 seconds. Add cocoa and red food coloring, beat slightly. Add sifted cake flour, salt, buttermilk, vanila and mix. Remove batter from mixer. In a small bowl dissolve baking powder in vinegar. Then pour over batter and manually stir. Dont over stir okay, or else the cake might get tough :) Scoop into cupcake pan 2/3s full and transfer to a 350 F oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted at the middle comes out clean Cool for a while then top with cream cheese frosting

For the cream cheese frosting:

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Beat the cream cheese, softened, cup unsalted butter, softened, powdered sugar, and 1teaspoon vanilla extract. Blend until smooth. Increase the speed to high and mix until very light and fluffy. Enjoy :)
