Ingredients You'll Need


Two and a half cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

Half tsp salt

1 cup butter

2 cups sugar

Half cup milk

1 oz red food colour

2 tsp vanilla extract

For the frosting:

8 oz cream cheese

4 tbsp butter

2 tsp sour cream

2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the flour, baking soda and salt. Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for five minutes or until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs one at a time.

Mix in the sour cream, milk, food colour and vanilla.

Gradually beat in the flour mixture on a low speed until blended.

Spoon the batter into paper-lined muffin cups, filling each cup two-thirds full.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350F for 20-25 minutes.

Allow to cool for five minutes.

Remove from the pans and spread with frosting. Makes 30.
