Yield: 6 Cupcakes

Prep. Time: 15 Mins.

Baking Time: 5 Mins.

For the Muffins:

[ Standard Measure : 1 cup = 250 ml ]

  • Maida [APF] – 90 gms
  • Castor Sugar – 80 gms
  • Cocoa – ½ tsp.
  • Milk – ¼ cup
  • White Vinegar – 1 + ½ tsp.
  • Oil – ⅓ cup
  • Soda-bi-carb – ¼ tsp.
  • Vanilla Essence – ½ tsp.
  • Red Food Colour Powder – ⅛
  • Salt – a pinch

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • Cream Cheese – 50 gms
  • Butter (soft) – 15 gms
  • Icing Sugar – 100 gms
  • Lime Juice – ⅓
  • Vanilla Essence – a drop

Step 1:     Line a 6 muffin cups with paper liners and keep aside.

Step 2:     Sift the maida, SBC, cocoa and salt in a bowl. Add the castor sugar to this and give a mix. Keep aside.

Step 3:     Add 1 tsp. vinegar to the milk and stir. Leave aside for 5 to 10 minutes to curdle.

Step 4:      When ready, set your oven to pre-heat at 180°C for 10 minutes.

Step 5:     Add the vanilla essence, oil and the remaining vinegar to the curdled milk. Whisk with an electric blender for a minute till well blended.

Step 6:     Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Also add the red food colour and fold using a whisk in till a smooth batter is formed (Do it lightly and don’t over mix). Add 2 to 3 tbsp. of milk and fold in if the mixture seems to dry.

Step 7:     Spoon the batter into the muffin liner cups. Fill till about ¾ full.

Step 8:     Bake in the pre-heated oven at 180° C for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes clean (middle rack, both coils on). Then remove from the oven and cool completely before you top them with the cream cheese frosting.

Step 9:     For the cream cheese frosting, sieve the icing sugar to remove lumps if any.

Step 10:     Take the sieved icing sugar, the cream cheese and butter and whisk using an electric beater on low speed.

Step 11:     Add the vanilla essence and lime juice and beat until creamy and fluffy on medium high speed.

Step 12:     Take the frosting in a piping bag and with a nozzle of choice inserted, pipe over the cooled cupcakes. Decorate with colourful sugar sprinkles.


  • Use red colour food colour powder which is available in markets specially to make red velvette cakes.
