Purple velvet cupcakes

Purple velvet cupcakes

I really wanted some cupcakes this past weekend. Don’t know why,  I just did. I also had some purple food coloring that was calling my name to experiment with. So I whipped up some ‘red velvet cake’ mix, and used purple instead of red. I must give props where props are due first. My husband ‘started’ getting the dry ingredients for me while I finished cooking our lunch for that day. Next thing we knew he had made my cupcakes for me. . . Here’s the recipe he used.

2 ½ cups of all purpose flour

1 ½ cup of sugar

1 tspn of baking soda

1tspn of salt

1tspn of cocoa powder

1 ½ cups vegetable oil

1 cup almond milk

2 large eggs

1 tspn vanilla

2TBspns food coloring.

First and most importantly he put all the dry ingredients together and sifted them together with his hands. Then one at a time he added the wet ingredients and mixed together before adding the next one.

Once everything was good and mixed and staining our counters purple. I preheated the oven to 350 and lined 2 cupcake tins then I filled each one 2/3rds full and baked for 20 minutes – turning the tins at the half way point.

I LOVE THE PURPLE CUPCAKES!!!

 

After they cooled completely I used a simple powdered sugar and butter mixture for the icing and we ate them.
