Red Velvet Cupcakes (Happy Cap Goh Mei + Valentine's Day 2014)



时间匆匆,今天已经是年十一了。然没有回家年,但是透面子朋友分享的照片,也感染喜气洋洋的气息。
今天和朋友集会提及我惰了也因健康问题,想把部落格下,Diana第一个反就是,我不答。。。不要关掉啦,惰了就久久做一次吧谢谢你,我的朋友。。谢谢你的支持。那我就久久做一次吧!
今年的农历元宵恰遇情人,可说是双喜临门。由于两天就要去印度旅行了,所以预先给爱人老公做了情人小蛋糕。红小蛋糕可爱浪漫,我家老公喜欢之极
祝大家元宵+情人
Red Velvet Cupcakes:
125 grams sifted cake flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoons cocoa powder
57g unsalted butter, at room temperature
150g granulated sugar   (I used 110g)
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
120 ml buttermilk
1 tablespoon liquid red food coloring
1/2 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Cream Cheese Frosting:
100g cream cheese, room temperature
100g butter, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
 90 grams icing sugar, sifted
Red Velvet Cupcakes:
Preheat oven to 160C (fan force) and line 12 muffin tins with paper cupcake liners. ( I only get 9 from this recipe)
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder.
In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until soft (about 1-2 minutes). Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Add the egg and beat until incorporated.  Add the vanilla extract and beat until combined.
In a measuring cup whisk the buttermilk with the red food coloring. With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture and buttermilk to the butter mixture, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour.
In a small cup combine the vinegar and baking soda. Allow the mixture to fizz and then quickly fold into the cake batter. 
Working quickly, divide the batter evenly among the muffin Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 18 -20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcakes comes out clean.
Let cool completely before frosting. Use a large 1M Wilton open star decorating tip to pipe the frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add the lemon juice and confectioners sugar and beat until smooth.
*Because I only used a small amount of icing sugar, the cream is not stiff enough to pipe. Place it in the fridge for a while to harden to piping consistency, then pipe the cream to decorate.
* Store the cupcakes in an airtight container, allow to leave them to room temp before serving.

  1. 好想挑战红绒蛋糕哦,严重被Cake Boss影响力
    Li Shuan你好,如果没有Buttermilk,可以用牛奶取代吗?还是可以diy啊?
    初十五有用到咯~

    1. 可以自己做buttermilk。。。这次的蛋糕糕我也自己做buttermilk。将半大匙的白醋加入半杯(125ml)的牛奶里搅匀。放置10 分钟左右,它会呈现好像水水的豆腐花状,再搅拌均匀使用就可以了。
      这个食谱只说是可以做到12个,但是我只是做到九个中小杯子。记得牛油要打发好蛋糕才会松软好吃。

    2. 喔,对了,小食代,cake boss 介绍这个蛋糕吗? 我第一次也是在纽约的某家杯子蛋糕店店主介绍后才知道有这个蛋糕的,因为有巧克力味道和搭配了cream cheese 的topping所以觉得挺好吃的。

    3. 牛奶不能自己冲的奶粉水吧?!不想为了一个食谱买牛奶=,=
      真的需要包装牛奶像是dxtch lxdy的话,就得买了..

      目前倒是没有看见红绒杯子蛋糕,可能小小的很费时吧
      Cake boss的顾客倒是很爱红绒蛋糕作为翻糖蛋糕里面的layer cake,红红的很可爱,呵呵
      这个link我今天发现的,很浪漫的粉红velvet !应该可以这么放吧?
