Recipe Category: Desserts

Yield: 12 Servings


  • 2 1/2 cups (580 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons (30 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons (10 g) baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5g) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 g) salt
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) buttermilk or milk
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) red gel paste food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (235 g) sugar
  • 3 eggs

  • Frosting:
  • 1 batch vanilla cream cheese frosting

  • Garnish:
  • White chocolate curls
  • 1 red velvet cupcake crumbled


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C
  • Line muffin cups with chosen paper liners.
  • Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium-size bowl and whisk.
  • In a small bowl, combine buttermilk, vegetable oil, red gel paste food coloring and vanilla extract and mix well.
  • In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat butter and sugar for about 4 minutes until creamy and light in color.
  • Incorporate eggs, one at a time, beating well. Reduce speed to low and slowly incorporate flour mixture and buttermilk mixture. Beat for 2 minutes or until well mixed.
  • Spoon half of the batter into plastic sandwich bag. Snip a 1/4 inch corner from the bag and fill the liners two-thirds full. Repeat operation until all the batter has been used.
  • Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcakes comes out clean.
  • Remove cupcakes from the baking pan and let cool on a wire rack. Set one aside for garnish.
  • Spoon vanilla cream cheese frosting into a piping bag or sandwich bag fitted with a large round tip. Pipe icing onto each cupcake, swirl the tip with your wrist as you pull up to form a peak.
  • Garnish cupcakes with white chocolate curls around the edges and sprinkle the tops with red velvet cupcake crumbs.
