Red Velvet Cupcake Recipe GF DF
2 1/2 cups gluten free flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup soy milk with a little squeeze of lemon juice in it
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons red food colour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two 12-cup muffin pans with baking papers.
Sift flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and cocoa powder into a large mixing bowl and then set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl combine the oil, soy milk, eggs, vanilla, vinegar and food color. With a hand or electric whisk, mix until thoroughly combined.
Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. With an electric mixer, mix to combine the ingredients and then continue to mix until thoroughly combined, about 2 minutes.
Portion the batter into the paper lined cupcake pans. Bake until the cake centers are firm to the touch — approximately 20 minutes.
Remove for the oven and cool. When cool, decorate with icing and your favorite decorations.
Yield: 36 mini cupcakes
