Red Velvet Chocolat Cupcake From The Southern . . .

A rich and sweet cake is what a red velvet cake is. It is a southern origin which makes it distinctive, popular and the dark red tanning makes it looks so sexy and yet so appealing. A truly cake sex goddess, a real seducer as it is originated from a mixture of fragrant buttermilk, unsalted butter, refined flour, dutch cocoa and red food coloring.

I love the texture of the red velvet, soft and fragrant and the color too is so attractive. I love to have them in a naked medium paper cups top with soft cream cheese frosting or even buttercream frosting. One thing about this red velvet cupcake, I never like to share mine with anyone, just like to pamper it myself . . . . so no sharing, have one yourself!

400gm Cake flour
45gm Cocoa powder
1.5tspn Salt
460gm Soften unsalted butter
350gm Sugar
3nos Large eggs
80gm Red food coloring
1pcs Vanilla pod
380gm Buttermilk
2tspn Baking soda
2.5tspn White vinegar



1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
2. In the mixing bowl, sift together the cake flour, cocoa powder and salt.
3. In the whisking bowl, whisk the butter and sugar at medium speed till incorperated.
4. Reduce the speed of the whisk, add the eggs, one at a time and whisk.
5. Cut the vanilla pod into half and scrap the vanilla seed into the mixture and add in the red food coloring, whisk till incorporated.
6. Add in the cake flour mixture in batches and also together with the buttermilk. Whisk the mixture.
7. Mix vinegar and baking soda together and add into the mixture.
8. Transfer the readily mixture into the medium cups, about 45-50gm per each cup.
9. Bake for about 20 to 25 mins.

I have tried this gorgeous red velvet cupcakes in many batches and also a lot of repeating orders, so I guess you will try them too as I know it will never go wrong . . . Love Sunny Yaw

    Good! I’ll bookmark it, cause I never made (or tasted) a red velvet cake. Can you believe that? And if you say this is a tried and true recipe I belive you, cause you know you’re a big boy! 😉

    Marvellous blog, all your cakes are so lovely!

    May I ask if you have ever used the balsamic vinegar for red velvet. I wonder how it will turn out?
