“You’re a human being, you live once and life is wonderful, so eat the damn red velvet cupcake.” – Emma Stone
Red velvet cupcakes are exceedingly popular. On blogs and in dessert shops . Somehow they seem fancier and sophisticated than chocolate or vanilla and the like, Or is it just me?
Fancy or not, they are as easy or easier than any other cupcakes. I feel like I use the word “easy” a lot here. But I can’t help it , most of my tried and tested recipes are the simpler recipes I come across. Which does not mean that they fall short in the taste department. These cupcakes are absolutely moist (another word i seem to be using a lot) and delicious.
This recipe is adapted from Gretchen’s bakery, which is one of my go-to sites for video tutorials on baking. I have tried many a red velvet cupcake and cake recipe. Have liked all of them. Love this one. Try it , you ll see why. If you got your ingredients at room temperature , it ll take only 10 minutes to get the first batch in the oven. And once they are done, It ll take even lesser time to devour a couple. They are that good!
These cupcakes are really good. Like as good as any bakery bought. And thats not even me bragging, as its not really my recipe. It really is that good . Moist and fluffy and light. Usually I say , frosting is optional but in this case, I urge you to try it with cream cheese frosting . Yumminess overload without a sugar overload!
