A moist, vibrant red velvet cupcake with a sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting can’t go wrong. Sometimes you just need a comforting classic that doesn’t have any crazy twist. You know how us bloggers can get a little carried away with the different flavors and combinations out there, but hey, we’re creative people.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put paper liners into two 12-count muffin tins (recipe makes roughly 18 so use 18 liners).
In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt until combined. Set aside.
In a large bowl beat together the oil and sugar. Then add the eggs, buttermilk, food coloring and vanilla until combined. Pour the flour mixture into the wet mixture, beating just until combined.
Fill the cupcake liners 2/3rd’s of the way full (I used a regular sized ice cream scoop) and bake for 22-26 minutes until a toothpick is inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. Remove them from the oven and set the pan on a cooling rack. Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting.
For the frosting: In a medium-sized bowl beat together the butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Add your salt, vanilla and sugar and beat until combined.
Frost the cupcakes then, garnish with cupcake crumbs if desired, and enjoy!
Banana cupcakes with Nutella and vanilla swirl buttercream.
Perfect for a summer picnic.
