Batter Preparation:

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees C and line 12 muffin tins with paper cupcake liners.
  • In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder.
  • In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until soft about 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Add the egg and beat until incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Add the vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  • In a small bowl whisk the milk with the red food coloring.
  • Add the flour mixture and milk to the butter mixture, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour.
  • In a small cup combine the vinegar and baking soda.
  • Add into the mixture and then quickly fold into the cake batter.



  • Divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups and smooth the tops with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcakes comes out clean.
  • Cool the cakes in their pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes and them remove from pan.
  • Let cool completely before frosting.
  • Either spread the frosting with a knife or offset spatula, or use a large open star decorating tip to pipe the frosting.


Buttercream Frosting:

  • In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until smooth and creamy.
  • Beat in the vanilla extract.
  • With the mixer on low speed, gradually beat in the sugar.
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of the milk and beat to combine.
  • Then, on high speed, beat frosting until it is light and fluffy (about 3-5 minutes).
  • Add more milk or powdered sugar, as needed, to get the right spreading consistency.
  • If needed, color the frosting with food color.
