    Question Red Velvet Cupcakes?

    Hi all! Has anyone tried this recipe for Red Velvet cupcakes from the WW website? I would love to make these for a holiday party I am having, but I want to make sure they are good before I make them!

    2 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
    1 tsp table salt
    1 tsp baking soda
    2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
    1 1/4 cup(s) buttermilk
    1 tsp white vinegar
    2 tsp vanilla extract, divided
    3/4 cup(s) sugar, granulated
    1/4 cup(s) light butter, softened
    2 large egg(s)
    1 cup(s) powdered sugar
    2 Tbsp Neufchatel cheese, softened
    Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare 16 muffin tins with paper muffin liners.

    In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking soda and cocoa; set aside.

    In another large bowl, mix together buttermilk, vinegar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract; set aside.

    With an electric mixer on high speed, cream granulated sugar with butter until light and fluffy. Reduce mixer speed and add eggs, one at a time, until well-incorporated.

    Add about 1/3 each of flour and buttermilk mixtures to sugar mixture; beat until just combined. Repeat until all of flour and buttermilk mixtures are incorporated; add 1 1/2 ounces of red food coloring and mix well with mixer (do not over beat batter).

    Fill each muffin tin about 2/3 full with batter.

    Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a cupcake comes out dry, about 25 minutes; cool for 5 minutes in pan and then cool completely on a wire rack.

    Meanwhile, to make icing, combine powdered sugar, cheese and remaining teaspoon of vanilla in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well-combined and creamy. For a looser icing, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of warm water. Ice cooled cupcakes. Yields 1 iced cupcake per serving.
