Red Velvet Cupcakes! Super Yummy-O!!
Tonight we had the sister missionaries from our church over for dinner so I thought I would try out a new cupcake. Red Velvet! I have never attempted these before and they actually turned out to be really easy (and super yummy!) Don't worry, I only had about half of one, I'm still trying to keep track of my WW points in my head. :) Here is the recipe I got for the cake from All Recipes. I ended up changing up a recipe for the cream cheese frosting and created my own.
I love it when the missionaries come over for dinner. It is so nice to have a gospel discussion after the desert is served.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 12 cup muffin pans or line with 20 paper baking cups.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs, buttermilk, red food coloring and vanilla. Stir in the baking soda and vinegar. Combine the flour, cocoa powder and salt; stir into the batter just until blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly.
Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter and frost with desired frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz of Cream Cheese
4-5 Cups Powdered Sugar
4 Tbsp Milk
Place Cream Cheese in your mixer. Cream until softened. Add milk. Mix again. Add Sugar one cup at a time until the desired consistency.
