Valentine’s day 2012 was a quiet one. But I did celebrate with a little bit of love. I adapted my current red velvet cupcake recipe.
This time around I changed it up a bit.
|I put them in mini cupcake moulds without patty pans, but just greased really well with oil.|
|I added the vanilla essence while mixing the cocoa powder with the red food colouring. This allows me to use less colouring but still get the nice pasty consistency.|
|I made it “black forest” by putting some Morello cherries in the middle.|
|Reduced the heat slightly (170C) and the time in oven to about 8 to 12 minutes|
