Salam untuk semua.I'm in love with this cupcake maker. You can gat you cupcake done in 8 to 10 minutes.This is the 2nd cupcakes that I made for this week. Many more will come.
The red velvet cup recipe from Joy of baking, I've made this before and this time I used the same recipe for this red velvet cupcakes for our teatime.Same recipe given here but I made half of the recipe for this cupcakes.
2 1/2 cups (250 grams) sifted cake flour (P.Ros used normal flour)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons (15 grams) cocoa powder (P.Ros put 1 1/2 only)
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups (300 grams) granulated white sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup (240 ml) buttermilk – see recipe below (P.Ros used milk + lemon)
2 tablespoons liquid red food coloring (P.Ros added 3 tablespoon)
1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon double action baking powder (P. Ros added this)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Butter two – 9 inch (23 cm) round cake pans and line the bottoms of the pans with parchment paper. Set aside.(Puan Ros guna acuan love shape dan potong kek kepada 2 bahagian sebelum sapu cream ditengah)
In a mixing bowl sift together the flour, salt, and cocoa powder. Set aside.
In 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 eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the vanilla extract and beat until combined.
In a measuring cup whisk the buttermilk with the red food coloring. With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture and buttermilk to the butter mixture, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour.
In a small cup combine the vinegar and baking soda. Allow the mixture to fizz and then quickly fold into the cake batter.
Working quickly, divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans and smooth the tops with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 25 – 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean. Cool the cakes in their pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Place a wire rack on top of the cake pan and invert, lifting off the pan. Once the cakes have completely cooled, wrap in plastic and place the cake layers in the freezer for at least an hour. (This is done to make filling and frosting the cakes easier.)
Add 1 tablespoon of white distilled vinegar, cider vinegar, or lemon juice to 1 cup (240 ml) of milk. Let this mixture stand 5 to 10 minutes before using.
P.Rose baked this using the cupcake maker and bake it for 5 to 7 minutes.
Cream Cheese Frosting
250ml whipping cream (I replace this with 80 grm butter and 2 tbs fresh milk)
200ml cream cheese( 200 grm)
1/2 cup confectioner sugar( you can add in more sugar to your taste)
1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
Mix everything in a big bowl and whip the cream until stiff peaks formed.
