Red Velvet Raspberry Cupcakes

Directions

  1. Allow butter and eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, line twenty-six 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups or parchment-paper squares. In a medium bowl stir together flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a very large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Gradually add sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time, beating on medium speed until combined. Scrape sides of bowl; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes more or until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in red food coloring, liqueur, and vanilla. Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. In a small bowl combine baking soda and vinegar; fold into batter.
  3. Spoon into prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-fourths full. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out batter in cups.
  4. Bake about 20 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool cupcakes in muffin cups on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from muffin cups. Cool completely on wire racks.
  5. Spread cupcakes with Cream Cheese-Raspberry Frosting. If desired, top each with a raspberry. Makes 26 (2-1/2- inch) cupcakes.

2 stars, good but not outstanding---even with using the whole 2 tablespoons each of Chambord in the batter & icing, there wasn't really any raspberry flavor at all.

Made these last night and they are surprisingly good. Nice tender crumb. I did add more cocoa because of the note in the review above. I also doubled the recipe and boy it makes a lot! I used 4 T cocoa for a single batch.



Enjoy!

Delicious. Though 1 tablespoon of cocoa sounded like terribly little - so I probably added 4-6 times that amount. Even then the cupcakes had a very light chocolate flavor - definitely not overwhelming. And the red color still was very strong.
