Red velvet cupcakes

Red velvet cupcakes

Sigh! It feels awfully lonely here..

Yeah, I know I just went missing after that one post. 🙄

First things first, sorry for the lack of activity here. Well, when real life demands all your attention 24 hours seems less.

Anyways, here I am, all hale and hearty. Howdy y’all?

We all are united by our love for food. I recently discovered I didn’t just loved eating food but enjoyed cooking it too. It relieved my stress and just made me plain happy.

So here I am with my very first recipe, hoping you all will give the necessary ingredients to make this endeavour a success.

Let’s get started. Red velvet cupcakes (who doesn’t love cupcakes?). Easy to bake and divine to taste.

Ingredients: 

For the Batter-

cup All purpose flour (maida)

2 tbsp corn flour

3/4th cup buttermilk

1 cup caster sugar

1 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp red food coloring (I used raspberry red)

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp softened unsalted butter.

1 tsp vanilla essence.

A pinch of salt. (Optional)

For the frosting- 

1/4th cup unsalted Butter

200 grams of cream cheese

1 cups icing sugar

1 tbsp vanilla essence.

Preparation:

Cupcakes

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees.
Mix & sieve the all purpose flour, corn flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt and keep it aside.
Take another bowl. Add butter & caster sugar and whisk it well. Add vanilla extract and red food colouring. Whisk it again. Add butter milk and whisk thoroughly. Now, slowly add the  flour mixture into this buttermilk mixture and whisk till everything is incorporated nicely.
Now add a spoonful of batter in the muffin moulds . Make sure you fill it halfway only.


Bake into a preheated oven for 15 min or till the skewer comes out clean. Let the cupcakes cool down completely.


Frosting

Take butter & cream cheese and whisk. Both cheese and butter should be softened at room temperature. Add icing sugar simultaneously while whisking. Add vanilla extract and whisk it once again.

#Tip
Always use an electric beater for preparing the frosting if you don’t want swollen arms. Trust me on this. 😛

Icing-

In a piping bag, put a nozzle of your choice and decorate the cupcakes with this creamy cheesy goodness. Add some colourful sprinkles and your red velvet cupcakes are ready to tantalize your taste buds.
