Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe was created through a lot of different experiments. It is a deliciously moist red velvet cupcake. With a light vanilla cream cheese frosting topped with a banana slice to top it off. It is so delicious!

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons cocoa powder, unsweetened
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk (to make your own butter milk use milk and a dash of apple cider vinger and let sit for 5 minutes)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 -3 ounces red food coloring
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup hot coffee, prepared


Line your cupcake pans with liners and pre heat the oven at 350F

In a large bowl add flour, baking soda, baking powder,and cocoa powder. Sift together and set Aside.

In a separate large bowl, add sugar and oil. Whisk together until combined.

Pour the flour mixture into the sugar mixture a little at a time. Beating until well combined.

When the cakes are done let them cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes. Then remove them from the pan and let them finish cooling on a wire rack.
