  • -Peheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cupcake pans and spray with non-stick spray.
  • -Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in bixing bowl. Sift dry ingredients 3 times.
  • -Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

  • -Fill lined cupcake pans 1/2 full of red velvet batter. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of cupcake comes out clean.
  • -Cool cupcakes in pans for 5 to 10 minutes before transfering them to wire rack.
  • -Cool completely before frosting.
  • (*Note)
  • Substitute 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar in 1 cup measuring cup. Fill milk in measuring cup to the 1 cup line.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • On a personal note. I used white vinegar and organic soymilk. Mine came out a little dry. So you may need to readjust a bit.
  • Frosting Directions:
  • In a medium size bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until blended and smooth. With electric mixer on low speed, beat in 4 cups confectioners' sugar. ( I did this a 1 cup at a time)
  • Frosting can also be done in a food processor.
  • Makes 3 cups.
