I used my regular recipe but reduced the oil content. The last few times I’ve made red velvet cupcakes the oil has seemed to settle in the bottom of the cupcakes and left an unpleasant aftertaste. Official Cupcake Tester aka hubby said the aftertaste problem was gone but they were not quite velvety enough so next time I’ll use 1 and 1/4 cups of oil. The recipe makes 24 cupcakes and they cooked in about 24 minutes. The cream cheese frosting recipe can be found here. Four cupcakes were given to my friend Sybella who started a brand new job today (we will miss you!), eleven went to hubby’s friends for their regular Monday night football get-together, a couple were sacrificed for taste testing and the rest went to my Dad and Nanna. I didn’t have one. I really do like the making more than the eating for some treats. Unless it’s chocolatey of course.
