Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 30 min
Yield: 24 cupcakes

Ingredients & Supplies Needed:
Muffin Tins and Cupcake Papers
2 1/2 cups cake flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons liquid red food coloring (Add more for desired darkness)
2 teaspoons white distilled vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tins with cupcake papers. .

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. In a separate bowl, mix milk and vinegar and let sit for 10 minutes – curdling will occur. Then add the oil, eggs, food coloring and vanilla to the milk mixture, whisking until mixed.

Using a stand mixer, add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with the paddle until just combined.

Divide the cake batter evenly into the tins – about 3/4 full. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

4 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
