- 2 1/2 cups cake flour
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
- 1 cup milk
- 2 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons liquid red food coloring (Add more for desired darkness)
- 2 teaspoons white distilled vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tins with cupcake papers.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. In a separate bowl, mix milk and vinegar and let sit for 10 minutes – curdling will occur. Then add the oil, eggs, food coloring and vanilla to the milk mixture, whisking until mixed.
Using a stand mixer, add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with the paddle until just combined.
Divide the cake batter evenly into the tins – about 3/4 full. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
