Red Velvet Cup Cake Recipe
- All purpose flour – 1 cup
- Cocoa Powder – 2 tsp
- Baking powder – 1 tsp
- Salt – one pinch
- Sugar – ¾ cup
- Sunflower oil – 1/3 cup
- Egg – 1
- Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
- Curd – 1/3 cup
- Warm Coffee – 1/3 cup (1/2 tsp coffee in 1/3 cup hot water)
- Red food color – 5-6 drops (I used red gel food coloring)
(Note: 1 Cup = 250 ml.
Whenever you are mixing for the cake with hand or hand mixer, you should mix in one direction only to get soft cakes.
Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature before you start mixing
Make sure your oven settings are correct, else cakes won’t come proper)
Preheat oven to 175 degree Celsius. Line a cupcake tray with cup cake liners and keep it ready.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl take sugar and oil. Mix with a mixer in high speed until its combined well
Add egg and mix with high speed.
Add vanilla essence and red food color (you need to get a good red color for the batter. Vary the amount of food color accordingly)
Add the dry ingredients to it, about 2Tbsp at a time mixing after each addition, just until combined. (all step from this step should be done in low/medium speed)
When you start finding it difficult to mix start adding curd and mix
Add coffee and mix until combined.
Batter is ready (The batter prepared will be runny)
Pour the batter in the cupcake tray (2/3 maximum in each liner)
Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Remove the cup cakes from the pan and let it cool. Serve and Enjoy!!!!
