Blue Velvet Cupcake Ingredients:

Blue Velvet Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of granulated sugar 
  • 2 sticks of butter, at room temperature   
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon of royal blue food coloring
  • Small dab/drop of violet food coloring  
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar

How to make blue velvet cupcakes:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the cocoa, flour, salt, and baking soda together.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy, then add eggs, buttermilk, vinegar, and food coloring.
  • Add in flour mixture and mix until well combined, being careful to not overbeat the batter*.
  • Spoon mixture into muffin tin liners making sure not to go over half full.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean, and then cool them completely.

*Pro Tip: Overbeating a cupcake batter will put air tunnels into the batter which, once baked, creates little tunnels in your finished product. That makes for dry cupcakes! So, when adding the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mix until just combined.
