Red Velvet Cupcakes by cake-engineering Red Velvet Cupcakes by cake-engineering
Made some red velvet cupcakes with some left over batter I had from a cake I made.

Here is the recipe for red velvet cupcakes that I use as suggested by Gina. Please note that this is not my original recipe.

Red Velvet Cake
(Original Recipe by Cakeology)

1 cups (375mL) vegetable oil
1 cup (250mL) buttermilk (or milk with 1 Tbsp (15mL) lemon juice if you can’t find it)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon (5mL) white vinegar
1 teaspoon (5mL) vanilla extract
1 cups (375mL or 375g) sugar
2 cups (625mL or 312.5g) all-purpose flour (regular/ plain flour)
1 teaspoon (5mL) baking soda
1 teaspoon (5mL) salt
1 Tablespoons (22.5mL) cocoa powder
1 oz (29mL) red food coloring (liquid)

Preheat oven to 325 F (160C).
Place oil, buttermilk, eggs, vinegar, vanilla, and sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer and beat with the paddle attachment until thoroughly mixed.
Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder together and slowly add to the mixer on low speed. Scrape down the bowl as needed.
Add the food coloring in a steady stream until desired color is reached. Beat for another 3 minutes.
Scrape the bowl one last time and mix for 30 seconds by hand.
Makes 2- 8in (20cm) rounds, 3 – 6in (15cm) rounds, or 1 – 10in (25cm) round
Fill the cake pans 2/3 full with batter and bake until they form a semi-hard crust on top or when a toothpick inserted comes out clean, about 25 minutes (varies on the size of cake pan used).

Cream Cheese Frosting
(Original Recipe by the Cake Mix Doctor)

1 package (8 oz or 224g) cream cheese, at room temperature
8 Tablespoons (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
3 cups (937.5 mL) confectioners sugar (icing sugar)
1 teaspoon (5mL) vanilla extract

Place the cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed until combined, 30 seconds. Stop the machine. Add the confectioners’ sugar (icing sugar), a bit at a time, blending with the mixer on low speed until the sugar is well incorporated, 1 minute. Add the vanilla, then increase the mixer speed to medium and blend the frosting until fluffy, 1 minute more.
