Have you walked by the grocery store’s bakery isle and just contemplated life over those frosted cookies or red velvet cupcakes? Don’t worry, I think we’re all a little guilty. I was wondering what made them so special and as far as the cupcakes go, I think I’ve figured it out. They have a secret frosting stash in the middle of the cupcake! We made our own copycat recipe for our Galentine’s Day brunch, and boy were they good!

Copycat Red Velvet Cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Red food coloring

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl and then set aside.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  3. Mix in sour cream, milk, food color and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until just blended, being careful not to overbeat.
  4. Spoon batter into 30 paper-lined muffin cups, filling each cup 2/3 full.
  5. Then place a dollop of icing in the middle of each cup. It's ok if it sinks or spreads. It's going to be gooey anyway!
  6. Bake 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cupcake comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire rack 5 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely. Frost with cream cheese frosting.
  7. Add on sprinkles, if you wish. Enjoy!
