Red Velvet Cupcakes

Ingredients for the cupcakes:
1 ¼ cups All purpose flour
½ Teaspoon baking powder
½ Teaspoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
¼ Teaspoon Salt
¾ Cup granulated sugar
¼ Cup Unsalted Butter @room temp.
¾ Cup Buttermilk (recipe here)
1 Egg
Vanilla Extract
About 1 tablespoon red food color

Ingredients for the cream cheese frosting:
4oz. packaged cream cheese @room temp. (I used Philadelphia)
3 Cups of powdered/icing sugar (sifted)
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter @room temp.
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract.

Combine the first five (5) ingredients and sift into a dry bowl.

Using a handmixer (or standing mixer), beat the sugar and butter for about 5 minutes.

Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat for another 2 minutes.

Add the milk and sifted dry ingredients and beat well.

Add the red food coloring a little at a time and mix in with a spatula.

Add more food coloring if you want more redness.

Use an ice-cream scoop to fill into cupcake liners.

Bake till a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean…mine took about 15minutes.

Allow the cupcakes to cool well while you make the cream cheese frosting:
Add all the ingredients to a bowl and beat well with your mixer till it's smooth. Spread on top of your cooled cupcakes and then garnish with whatever topping you have. ENJOY!!!
