Red velvet Cupcake

One lazy rainy sunday ,we were all at home and i thought of trying to bake red velvet cake for the first time,good thing i had all the ingredients at home but not enough for a cake so i just did cupcakes.


3 large egg whites
red food coloring- paste form (that i bought in backeria.ch)
1 half tsp.vanilla extract
200 g flour
200 g sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp cocoa powder ( we just have nesquick available and it was fine)
1/2 Teaspoon salt
55 g butter
120 g butter milk

For the frosting:

270 g cream cheese, (cream cheese) 19° c.
100 ml. Double creme
200g. Mascarpone cream cheese 
1 cup confectioners sugar


Before you begin:

Set out muffin dish and Preheat oven to 175 ° c..

Dough preparation:

In a mixing bowl, mix butter at medium speed ,put the flour mixture  ( sifted flour,cocoa powder and salt) 
then put buttermilk and stir on medium level until everything is moistened then put the egg mixture slowly (egg, red food color and vanilla extract)

mix baking powder to 1 tsp. vinegar  together and mix it with your finish dough and about 2/3 dough, fill each muffin cups quick and bake 20-25 minutes,let it cool 10 minutes on a wire rack.

Cream cheese frosting:

Mix The mascarpone cream cheese and the normal cream cheese together until smooth.Then put the double cream and confectioners sugar and cool it in the fridge.

Decorate the Cupcakes with the frosting using pastry bag or pallet.

I use one extra cupcake as a topping using cheese grater.

It was quick and simple recipe,i don't usually follow what is written online because of too much extra ingredients and dificult procedures. I just bake the way i want it to be though is really important to follow the exact ingredients i'm always making sure that everything is balance to have that delicious cupcakes.
