Ingredients For Cupcakes and Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of white distilled vinegar
  • 1 ½ cups of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of buttermilk (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ cups of vegetable oil
  • 1 pound of cream cheese (softened)
  • 4 cups of sifted confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 sticks of (softened) butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grab two muffin pans and place 12 cupcake papers on each pan. Using a large mixing bowl mix together your buttermilk, oil, eggs, vinegar, vanilla, and food coloring with an electric mixer. In another bowl mix your flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and cocoa powder until everything has been combined. Pour your baking soda mixture into your large bowl and stir all of the ingredients until the batter is smooth and rich. Begin by spooning your batter into each of your cupcakes. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, turning your pans once about halfway done. Once your cupcakes have finished allow them to cool while you begin to make the frosting.

To make the frosting use a large mixing bowl pour in your cream cheese, vanilla, and butter while mixing with an electric mixer until everything is smooth. Add in your sugar and continue to beat the ingredients on a low speed until combined. Turn the speed up to medium and high as you notice your frosting become light and fluffy.

Begin to apply your frosting either using a piping bag or spread knife and serve.
