Christmas Velvet cupcakes (圣诞红丝绒杯子蛋糕)

Today is Christmas Eve. Have you plan anything for tonight?? My family and I, we are attending the Christmas Eve mass in the Cathedral. I love the Christmas Eve mass as you can hear the lovely voices from the choir group singing the Christmas Hymns and Carols.

Forever Friends is sending a gift to you!!!


Velvet cupcakes without the FF topper, just cream cheese rosette frosting!

With Santa FF bear topper. Which one do you like? The rosette frosting or the FF bear topper? :D

This velvet cupcake is moist and dense.
It pair very well with the cream cheese frosting.

Christmas Velvet Cupcakes(圣诞红丝绒杯子蛋糕)
Recipe adapted from 星期天的烘焙时光-郑荣仙者 (this book is in Chinese - Home Baking by Parandal)
makes: 5 cupcakes

Ingredients for velvet cupcake:

70g unsalted butter 
80g castor sugar 
1 egg 55g sour cream
35g milk 
88g plain flour 
12g cocoa powder 
1/2 tsp baking powder 
1 tsp red food coloring (I use Americolor 119-RED RED)

Ingredients for Cream Cheese Frosting: 
140g cream cheese 
70g unsalted butter 
55g icing sugar 
1 tsp lemon juice (I omit this)

for frosting:
Beat cream cheese, butter, icing sugar and lemon juice till smooth.

 To do for cupcakes: Beat butter and sugar till smooth. Beat in egg till combine. Add in sour cream and milk. (mixture will become curd but no worries. As you fold in flour the mixture will turn smooth) 

Fold in flour and cocoa powder till combine. Scoop mixture into each cupcake cases about 70% full. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 20-25 minutes.

Wishing all readers and friends a
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ^_^
