Blog Inspired Coral Velvet Cupcake Recipe

I think I have found a great recipe for red velvet cupcakes, a big thank you to wonderful Rianne for her inspiration! The original recipe is from Rianne's captivating blog :

I have adapted her recipe with what I had in my pantry.

15.75 ounces granulated sugar
3 large eggs
12 ounces sour cream
.5 ounces red food color
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
14 ounces all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350F , line 3 cupcake pans with cupcake liners.
  1. In a large mixing bowl cream butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time until combined = A
  2. In a small bowl combine sour cream, food color and vanilla extract = B
  3. In a medium bowl sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt = C
  4. In mixing bowl A add 1/2 of B, until combined. Then add 1/2 of C combine and repeat with remaining B and C.
