Mini Red Velvet Cakes


Mini Red Velvet Cakes
(Recipe adapted & modify from Noms I Must)

Ingredients
60g salted butter, softened
100g caster sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbsp red food colouring
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
120ml milk
150g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
 
2. Whisk the butter & sugar until light & fluffy. Add in egg & beat until everything is well incorporated.
 
3. In a separate bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, red food colouring & vanilla essence to make a thick, dark paste. Add to the butter mixture & mix thoroughly until evenly combined. Slowly pour in half the milk. Beat until well mixed, then add half the flour & beat until everything is well incorporated. Repeat this process until all the milk & flour have been added. Add bicarbonate of soda & lemon juice. Beat until well mixed.

4. Spoon the mixture into silicon moulds until two-thirds full & bake for 20–25 mins, or until the sponge bounces back when touched. 

5. When cupcakes are cold, spoon cream cheese frosting on top.
