was success! Yes, indeed!
My very first attemp to red velvet cupcake was indeed a success and I was really happy with the outcome! Sobra! I sooo love the red velvet cupcake, and it haunts me ever since I tasted it. I love the frosting, the cupcake itself, and the vibrant color of it, it’s seduce me everytime I see it. So how did I come up to this cupcake?! Well, I was checking an online store and found this muffin/cupcake maker. And so when I saw this mini cupcake and muffin maker at some random online store I immediately purchased it.
Actually, I purchased this months ago but didn’t have the chance to use/try it as we all know I am crazy busy with A LOT of things these past few months.
Finally, last Friday I was able to use it and the first thing that I tried was red velvet cupcake. I know it sound very ambitious for a first timer like me but hey this is a free country and that’s what I really wanted to do. LOL! And what’s good about this cupcake?! It’s a no-bake-cupcake! Sounds good right?! No oven needed! And no gas needed! All you need is an electrical socket and you’re good to go.
I intended to share this recipe before Christmas so you can add it on your noche buena in case you want to try it. Alright so let’s start now because I need to bake another batch again due to public demand. Hehe
• all-purpose flour
• baking soda
• cocoa powder
• cups sugar
• cup butter milk
• red food coloring
• vanilla extract
Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients:
• cream cheese
• sifted confectioner’s sugar
Cooking bonus tips: As per the expert, Ate Maggie: If you can’t find any buttermilk in stores, just pour 2 1/4 tsp of lemon juice into 3/4 cup milk. Let it stand to 5-10 mins until the milk curds. And viola! There’s your buttermilk!
And there, hope it helps! 🙂
1. In a medium bowl, sift together all dry ingredients like flour, baking soda, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt.
2. In a large seperate bowl gently beat together the oil, eggs, food coloring, vinegar, vanilla, and buttermilk.
3. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth and thoroughly combined.
4. Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake tins with cupcake papers.
Another cooking tips: Test the cupcake with a toothpick for doneness.
5. Remove from cupcake maker or oven and cool completely before frosting.
For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
1. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla together until smooth. Add the sugar, beat until incorporated. Mix until very light and fluffy.
And tadaaah! You’re good to go!
Ladies, gays, and gentlemen!
