Red velvet cupcakes


Serves: 20
120g butter
300g caster sugar
2 eggs
250ml buttermilk
2 tablespoons red food colouring/ natural food dye
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon vinegar
250g plain flour
5 tablespoons best quality cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt

Preparation method

Prep: 30 mins | Cook: 20 mins

1.Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Grease two 12 cup muffin tins or line with 20 paper cases. 2.In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs, buttermilk, red food colouring and vanilla. Stir in the bicarb and vinegar. Combine the flour, cocoa powder and salt; stir into the mixture just until blended. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin, dividing evenly. 3.Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the tin set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter and ice with desired frosting.

Alternatively swap the red for blue or any other colouring. Be aware the black colouring can stain your mouth.
