Red Velvet Cupcakes

6 Big Cupcakes

As I often bake tea time cakes or cupcakes for my family & everyone, I enjoy it with a cup of hot tea or coffee. I just love baking during the weekend and stock it for a week.

Last weekend, I baked these amazing Eggless Red Velvet Cupcakes for my daughter & she just loves homemade cake. I baked it in the evening and gave her a surprise late night and her reaction was worth capturing! she was completely blown away by the surprise and couldn't believe it for a while and was very very happy and excited to eat 😁.

As this is an eggless recipe, I have used buttermilk instead of eggs. Buttermilk gives softer texture & a hint of tang and it's really a best substitute for eggless cake. I have used Beetroot juice that give natural colour to the cake but you can add red food colour if you want.

This Eggless Cupcakes recipe is worth a try. So do try this amazing version of Red Velvet Cupcakes.
