These cupcakes kick things up a notch, thanks to the addition of cherry pie filling. The red velvet batter is made via a classic combination of cocoa powder, flour, eggs, white vinegar, buttermilk, vanilla extract, red food coloring and several other items. Once they have baked and have had a chance to cool, a core is cut out of the center of each and cherry pie filling is added. Replace the top, frost with cream cheese icing and enjoy!

Red Velvet cupcakes are a classic treat that can easily be served at any function, big or small, fancy or casual. These are flavored with unsweetened cocoa powder, and also contain cake flour, kosher salt, an egg, sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, buttermilk, baking soda, white vinegar, and of course, red food coloring (otherwise they would just be chocolate cupcakes.) In order to follow tradition, top them with cream cheese frosting. If you prefer, you can toss on a few sprinkles as well!

Red velvet cupcakes are traditionally topped with cream cheese frosting, but as the cupcakes do contain cocoa powder, chocolate frosting will work just as well. These are made with flour, baking soda, salt, vegetable oil, sugar, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, red food coloring and the aforementioned cocoa powder. However, they use slightly more cocoa powder than the standard recipe. The frosting is a chocolate buttercream, and it is topped with white chocolate hearts.
Beets and cupcakes are two things that normally do not go together. However, this red velvet cupcake recipe uses them instead of red food coloring in order to produce a brightly colored treat. The batter is also vegan, made of beets, coconut oil, flour, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, baking powder, natural cocoa powder and almond milk. The frosting contains cream cheese, but is otherwise healthy, although you can always substitute in vegan cream cheese if you prefer.

Red velvet cupcakes are a holiday classic, although they can be made (and enjoyed) any time of the year. These are made with standard red velvet cake ingredients, including cocoa powder, baking soda, sugar, eggs, buttermilk, flour, vanilla extract and red gel food coloring. The main difference is that they are made in a mini cupcake pan instead of a standard one, and that they are topped with orange cream cheese frosting and candied blueberries.

Red Velvet cupcakes traditionally contain cocoa powder and red food coloring. After all, the food coloring is what gives them their name, and the cocoa powder is what provides the flavor — otherwise you would just have plain, boring white cupcakes. However, this recipe’s addition of orange zest to the batter gives these treats another dimension. The zest adds a slight “zing” to the overall flavor. Top these cupcakes with cream cheese icing and enjoy!

While the origins of red velvet cake recipes remain a bit of a secret (there are several competing theories grounded in historical fact) the only thing that really matters is the fact that red velvet cake is tasty, especially in cupcake form. These red velvet cupcakes contain many of the traditional ingredient, including cocoa, sugar, flour, white vinegar and buttermilk. The frosting on these particular cupcakes is a French-style butter roux, although you can go with cream cheese icing if you prefer.
