I wanted to make a dessert that looked impressive and fun to eat. These Red Velvet Cream Filled Cupcakes filled the bill!
This is an adaption of a recipe from Cheryl Day of “Back in the Day” Bakery. I used her recipe for the cupcake and frosting, but used a completely original filling.
With the beautiful red color, these cupcakes would be perfect to serve for the Christmas holidays or Valentine’s Day parties. Plus, they taste as good as they look!
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Line muffin tins with paper cupcake cups .
Sift together the flour, baking soda, and cocoa; set aside.
In the bowl of mixer, cream the butter, oil, and sugar together on medium-low to medium speed for 5 to 7 minutes, until very pale and thick.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add the food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla and mix for 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the sifted dry ingredients in thirds, alternating with the buttermilk, beginning and ending with the flour, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
Mix for another 1 to 2 minutes.
Divide the batter evenly into cupcake papers, filling approximately 1/3 full.
In separate bowl, combine all ingredients for filling.
Drop approximately 1 tablespoon of filling in the center of each cupcake.
Add more batter into the cupcake on top of the filling until each one is about 2/3 full.
Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center of a cake comes out clean.
Frost when cooled completely.
==== Directions for Frosting:=====
In mixing bowl, beat the butter, cream cheese, and vanilla until smooth and creamy, 3 to 5 minutes.
Gradually add the confectioners’ sugar, beating until light and fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes.
