Nutrition: per serving



  • 150 g Plain Flour
  • 150 g Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 60 ml Oil Neutral-flavoured
  • 1 large Egg
  • 120 ml Buttermilk
  • 1-2 tsp Red Food Colouring Adjust to your preference

For Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 150 g Cream Cheese Softened
  • 75 g Unsalted Butter Softened
  • 150 g Icing Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C and lining a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  • Take a bowl and sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix thoroughly to blend the dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the white vinegar, vanilla extract, vegetable oil, egg, buttermilk, and red food coloring until they are well incorporated.
  • Gradually combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, stirring until the batter is smooth and free from lumps.
  • Divide the batter equally among the cupcake liners, filling each to about two-thirds full.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of a cupcake emerges clean.
  • Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the muffin tin for approximately 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • While the cupcakes are cooling, prepare the cream cheese frosting. Beat the softened cream cheese and butter together in a mixing bowl until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, continuing to beat until the frosting is thoroughly combined and fluffy.
  • Once the cupcakes have cooled entirely, frost them with the cream cheese frosting using either a piping bag or a spatula.
  • You have the option to decorate the cupcakes with additional red velvet crumbs or any other decorations of your preference.
  • Enjoy your homemade Red Velvet Cupcakes!
