Rich and chocolatey without being dense, these red-hued cupcakes feature buttermilk in the batter for tang and tenderness. Meanwhile, vinegar and baking soda kick-start a chemical reaction to give the batter a lift as it bakes. White chocolate buttercream frosting is, quite literally, the icing on the cake. To top things off, candied cherries and colored sprinkles set a festive tone, though really you can decorate the cupcakes however you like.

Ingredients

  • 135 grams butter
  • 300 grams sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 20 grams cocoa powder
  • 40 milliliters red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 300 grams all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 240 milliliters buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 200 grams white chocolate
  • candied cherries
  • sprinkles

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and place the cupcake liners in the cupcake pan.
  2. Cream the 120 grams of butter with the sugar in a bowl using a hand mixer. Add the eggs, one at a time.
  3. In another bowl, combine the cocoa with the food coloring and the vanilla extract and add this mixture to the butter, incorporating them well.
  4. Sift the flour with the salt and add it to the butter, alternating with the buttermilk or yogurt.
  5. Combine the vinegar with the baking soda and quickly add it to the batter. MIx well.
  6. Fill the cupcake molds 2/3 full and bake them for approximately 20 minutes.
  7. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan, remove the cupcakes from the pan and then cool them completely.
  8. Melt the white chocolate with the remaining butter and mix well. Frost each cupcake.
  9. Garnish with a candied cherry cut in half, and coat with the colored sprinkles.
