{Red Velvet Cupcakes}

I saw this recipe in a magazine and was in the mood for cupcakes. They turned out really yummy, and my kids loved how bright red they were 🙂

3 eggs
3/4 cups butter
3 cups flour
2 tsp cocoa powder
2 1/4 cups sugar
3/4 salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 10oz bottle red food coloring (about 2 Tbs)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vinegar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl combine flour, cocoa, and 3/4 tsp salt. In a large bowl beat the butter until fluffy, add the sugar and vanilla, beat till combined. Add the eggs 1 at a time until well incorporated. Beat in the food coloring. Add flour mixture and buttermilk. Stir together the baking soda and vinegar, add to the batter and beat till well combined. Bake the cupcakes for 15-17 minutes. Top with either a cream cheese frosting or dust the tops with powdered sugar.
