I know what you are thinking…not another Red Velvet Cake / Cupcake recipe, right? I know it’s become such a craze the whole Red Velvet Cake, Red Velvet Cheesecake, Red Velvet Brownies…and so on. I just had to make these and share these Amazing Red Velvet Cupcakes recipe with everyone as it is truly an amazing recipe.
I would admit that I have used a cake box to make Red Velvet Cake in the past and that I have tried so many recipes to make my own version and I really do like this recipe. Although knowing me, while I love this recipe for Red Velvet Cake, I know I’ll probably still try others just to compare. I added a twist to this recipe by adding espresso powder and mini chocolate chip morsels. Red Velvet cake is really just a chocolate cake with red dye…and let’s not forget the buttermilk and distilled vinegar (right vinegar in a cake???)
Anyway it’s a super easy cake recipe…you basically sift your dry ingredients, excluding the sugar, in a bowl and set aside
In a separate bowl you add your wet ingredients and mix well, this is basically your sugar, eggs, oil, buttermilk, and vinegar
I then used my kitchen aid to mix it all together or you can use a handheld. So I put my wet ingredients in the bowl first
then the dry on top
and I mixed it until well mixed about 2 minutes
finally I added my vanilla extract and red food coloring and my mini chocolate chips
I used extra large cupcake liners and an ice cream scooper to scoop them so they are mostly the same amount
For the extra large liners, I baked them for about 25-28 minutes
I used my favorite cream cheese frosting recipe to frost them and here they are….AMAZING!!!!!
I can assure you that once you start to make your own cakes from scratch, you won’t wanna use boxes anymore.
