POOJA DHINGRA'S RED VELVET CUPCAKES

Makes 24 mini cupcakes

55 grams butter

150 grams castor sugar

1 egg

Preheat oven to 180C.

In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, cream the butter and castor sugar till light and fluffy, for about 5 minutes.

In a small bowl, whisk together the red food colouring, cocoa and vanilla essence. Add to the batter and beat well.

In a measuring cup, stir the salt into the yoghurt and give a slight whisk. Add to the batter. Now add the flour.

In a small bowl, stir together the cider vinegar and baking soda. Add to the batter and mix well.

Using a rubber spatula, scrape down the batter in the bowl, making sure the ingredients are well blended and the batter is smooth.
