3⅓ c. cake flour (not self-rising)
¾ c. (12 Tbl.) unsalted butter, room temperature
2¼ c. sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature
2 Tbl. liquid red 食物 coloring
3 Tbl. unsweetened 可可 powder
1½ tsp. vanilla extract
1½ tsp. salt
1½ c. buttermilk
1½ tsp. white vinegar
1½ tsp. baking soda
Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 c. (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, room temperature
¼ tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
4½ c. powdered sugar
1 Tbl. milk, plus 更多 if needed
Preheat 烤箱 to 350 degrees. Line a 松饼 tin with paper liners and spray with cooking spray; set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine 牛油, 黄油 and sugar and mix on medium speed until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a small bowl, whisk the 食物 coloring, 可可 powder and vanilla together; add to the butter/sugar mixture and mix well. Stir the salt into the buttermilk and add to the batter in three parts, alternating with the cake flour, starting and ending with flour. In a small bowl, stir together the vinegar and baking soda; add to the batter and mix well.
Fill 杯形饼, 蛋糕 liners ⅔ full with batter and bake in preheated 烤箱 for 17-18 分钟 或者 until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over bake. Repeat with remaining cupcakes. Cool completely and 最佳, 返回页首 with Cream Cheese Frosting. Makes about 3½ dozen cupcakes.
For the Cream Cheese Frosting: In a large bowl, mix together butter, cream cheese, salt and vanilla until smooth. Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating well after each addition. If frosting is too thick, add a little milk. If 你 are planning to pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes, 你 want it thick enough to hold its shape. This makes enough frosting to pipe a big swirl on the 最佳, 返回页首 of each cupcake. I used a Wilton 1M piping tip.
*If 你 do not want to pipe a large swirl onto each 杯形饼, 蛋糕 and prefer to spread a small layer on 最佳, 返回页首 instead, the amount of frosting can be cut in half.
