Instructions

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.

  1. Hi I tried this recipe and mine turned out to be much darker ( sort of a burgundy). How do I achieve a bright red ? Would you recommend reducing the amount of coloring?
    P.S I live in the UK .Not sure if our coloring is more concentrated than yours in the US

  2. Hi!!! Love this recipe, super delicious but I seem to have the same problem with the color. I use red red by americolor is there another shade of red by americolor I should try?

  3. Reduce the cocoa i have a cupcake business. I only add 1 tablespoon of cocoa and use buttermilk
    i also use the whole 1oz of food coloring
