Red Velvet Cupcakes
Oh man- these are opinion changers. I've made them many times and can honestly say they're the single best cake/ cupcake recipe in my arsenal! Before these, I honestly thought homemade cupcakes or cake wasn't worth the time and effort. These break that stereotype pretty quick! They're moist, tender, easy to make, and a sure-fire crowd pleaser!
I made a few slight modifications which only enhance the already awesome recipe, including adding 2 teaspoons of lemon zest to the included recipe for icing, and adding a little more sour cream (about 2T) then listed. In addition, I beat until light and fluffy after adding the four eggs to make sure the butter doesn't get caught in my beaters.
