Red Velvet Cupcake
This recipe modified based on Vegan Red Velvet Cupcake with addition of egg and butter. The texture was so soft and fluffy. Taste was good too. The bright red cupcakes looks gorgeous and luxurious when in contra with white cream cheese topping. I should bake this as Valentines Day special for my lovely husband! As I mentioned earlier in previous post, Unsweetened cocoa powder was substituted with 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder plus a pinch of baking soda. Buttermilk function to have more crumbier and moist cake. Its a perfect bake. I just love it!
