Kek cawan "merah Baldu"

a request from my school mate who is in India, sorry Nozi, took so long to write this, hope this helps, a recipe extracted from one of my collection of cookbooks.


2 1/2 cups cake flour- sifted
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
( whisk all three )

1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup veg oil
( with an electric mixer on med high speed, whisk these two until combined

Add eggs ( 2 ) one at a time. beating until each is incorporated.

mix in:
1/2 tsp red gel-paste fod colour
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

reduce speed to low, add flour mixture in three batches, alternating with two additions of buttermilk ( 1 cup ), whixking well after each.

Stir together:
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
and 2 tsp distilled white vinegar, in a small bowl ( it will foam);

and this mixture to the batter, and mix on med speed 10 sec.

pour into your papercups or into the muffin tin lined with papercups, about three quarter full, bake for about 20 minutes in a pre-heated oven ( 350F )

nice to be eaten with cream cheese frosting

My first reaction when I ate this Red velvet was mixed. I didn't quite like it at first, it tasted rather funny , but when I tried it again, I just had to have more, one cup was not enough and I ate it even without the cream cheese frosting , but it tastes much better wth the frosting.
