Red Velvet Cupcakes

     With Valentine's day just around the corner, it's time for red sweet bakeries. It is true that people cook and bake all over the year, but a lot of them like to prepare special food for Valentine. So, I decided to present to you some lovely recipes you may want to share with your loved ones. Today's recipe is red velvet cupcakes. They are such a delight, both in form and taste. It's a wonderful treat to serve to your family and friends. I hope you enjoy this recipe!


- 1 1/4 cups Cake flour, sifted
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 Egg
- 1 tsp Cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup Buttermilk
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- 1/2 tsp Baking soda
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp Liquid red food coloring


1-  Preheat your oven to 180°C and  and lay a muffin tray with paper muffin cases.
   In a small bowl, mix buttermilk with food coloring and set aside.

2- In a big bowl, soften your butter and sugar. Add the egg, and mix until combined. Separately, sift flour, cocoa power, baking powder, and baking soda.

3- Add half of the dry ingredients to the batter and mix until combined. Add colored buttermilk and mix well. Add the remaining half of dry ingredients and mix until combined.

 4- Fill your cases and bake for 25 to 30 min or until a toothpick comes out dry.

5- I used melted chocolate to stick my favorite sugar candies as a decoration. Feel free to add your creations.

 Enjoy your cupcakes!
