Red Velvet Cupcakes

Submitted by: OCTOBERBRIDE09

Introduction

These are the best red velvet cupcakes I have ever made...they have a light, airy texture...not heavy and dense like you would expect from a homemade recipe. These are by no means light...this would be a once in a blue moon indulgence!

Ingredients

    2.5 cups of flour
    1.5 cups sugar
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tbl. cocoa powder
    1.5 c. canola oil
    2 lg. eggs, room temperature
    1 c. buttermilk, room temperature
    1-1oz. bottle of red food coloring
    1 tsp. white vinegar
    1 tsp. vanilla

    Cream Cheese Frosting:
    12 oz. low fat cream cheese, softened
    3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
    1 tsp. vanilla
    3 c. powdered sugar

Directions

Sift the dry ingredients together and set aside. Put the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food coloring, vinegar and vanilla in mixing bowl and beat on low. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet and mix until smooth and well incorporated.

Line 2 cupcake tins with paper liners. Fill each liner 2/3 full. I use an ice cream scoop so each cupcake is the same size and they all bake evenly. Bake cupcakes in over at 350 degrees for 20-22 minutes, turning pans once, half way through. Remove from oven and cool completely. Frost with cream cheese icing.

Cream Cheese Frosting: In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar on low speed until well incorporated. Increase speed to high and beat until frosting is light and fluffy.

For a lighter cupcake, omit the frosting and dust with powdered sugar...they are yummy either way!
