super good right out of the oven when warm, didn't really taste as good the next day. ALSO, an ounce of red food coloring is more than you think.

This recipe require way too much cocoa powder. The Martha Stewart recipe only requires 1/3 cups versus what this recipe requires. Although my cupcakes taste like 'red velvet' they certainly did not look like red velvet, as the cocoa powder overpowers the red shade. My cupcakes were brown.

I made these and was pleased with the taste. Red velvet it is normally a very dense cake but this was nicely balanced.

Delicious! I followed the recipe, used a total of 2 ounces of food coloring and added 1T of sour cream as suggester by another review and it was delicious and I got tons of compliments. It did not have enough chocolate for me and next time I will increase the chocolate (probably to 1/2c like someone else suggested). Also would recommend sifting the flour and chocolate together, to get it to blend better. For icing I used the white chocolate cream cheese frosting from red velvet cake IV which was perfect for this!

I was really excited to make this recipe after reading all of the great review's but I was disapointed once it was made... It doesnt taste that good, it mostly tastes like the cocoa power... The last time I had red velvet cake it was amazing and I think it had strawberry in it. If I do make this recipe again I will have to tweek it alot and probably add strawberry flavering somehow...

These are the best cupcakes I've ever had. They are phenomenally moist. I let the batter sit in the fridge for 24 hours- just because I was out of food coloring- but apparently it only made them better. I will definitely make again. My family loved them. Frosted with Janni's "Cream Cheese Frosting II" recipe. Perfect.

This was my first ever red velvet cupcake...and it was great! I made mini cupcakes, so I scaled my recipe down to 5 servings and ended up with about 16 mini cupcakes. I also used a food coloring gel instead of liquid, stirring it into the milk until the color was a nice rich red. The things i changed about this recipe were to use melted margarine instead of butter, only 2T of cocoa, and I had to reduce the baking time to 13-14 min for my mini sized cupcakes. They turned out beautifully! I melted 1/4 c of chocolate chips, put in a ziploc bag, cut off a small tip, and squeezed heart shaped designs onto wax paper and then froze. These made the cutest toppers for valentine's day!!

Excellent cupcakes! I've never made red velvet cake before, but now I realize what I've been missing out on! Yummy! I filled mine with cream cheese frosting just for fun...very good that way too :)

This recipe was okay. Followed the recipe, but it was a little bland. Maybe it'd taste better with some alterations? Might try it again at some point...
