my red velvet cupcakes... yummy!!!
salam adik maness.. how are you doing?? feeling good?? alhamdulillah... right now ahkak jah find a new hobby & really adore about it... proudly to announce that i'm a baker in my little kitchen.. hihihi.. as some of you might know that i'm a big fan of rvc, so 90% of my baking time goes to rvc... yeay!!!
at first, i thought baking was super difficult job to do.. but i was wrong.. after quite sometimes, this job become so easy..
my kids loved the cuppies... i always baked after i reached home, definitely at night around 9-10pm.. as a beginner, i took almost 2 hours to finish my job.. slow, eh?? the next day, i used to bekalkan my kids with 4 cuppies.. and usually my rvc finished on the next day.. the longest period was two days.. did i already mentioned about hantu cake here?? of course, this hantu cake an eat 4 cuppies at a time.. no wonder all my rvc finished in a short time..
being a beginner, the first job is to look for the best recipe.. i collect a lot of rvc recipes from my friends & internet... then i analysed the recipes to find similarity and differences between one and another..
here's the recipe.. i combined the recipe that i found in internet with my friend's recipe.. the outcome was so OHSEMMM, TASTY, etc... i love it...
- 350g (2 1/3 cups) plain flour
- 2 tbs cocoa powder
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 315g (1 1/2 cups) caster sugar
- 250ml (1 cup) buttermilk (add 1 tsp white vinegar in fresh milk for about 10 mins)
- 185ml (3/4 cup) vegetable oil (i replace with 125g unsalted butter)
- 2 eggs
- 3 tsp red food colouring
- 2 tsp white vinegar
- Dollar Sweets Fairy Fives sprinkles, to decorate frosting
cream cheese frosting:
- 250g pkt cream cheese, at room temperature
- 100g butter, at room temperature
- 195g (1 1/4 cups) pure icing sugar, sifted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- i add 1 tsp of white vinegar
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line eighteen 80ml (1/3-cup) capacity muffin pans with paper cases. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar.
Whisk the buttermilk, oil, eggs, food colouring and vinegar in a jug until combined. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture. Add the buttermilk mixture and stir until just combined.
Divide the mixture among the prepared pans. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centres comes out clean. Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely.
To make the cream cheese frosting, use an electric beater to beat the cream cheese, butter, icing sugar and vanilla in a bowl until smooth.
Pipe the icing over the cupcakes and top with the sprinkles.
for those who not familiar with this cake, i suggest that you refer to youtube on how to make rvc because it has an additional step to follow...
don't forget to try... bye..
