Yield: 12 cupcakes

4 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temp

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

2 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder

3 Tbsp red food coloring

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 cup + 2 Tbsp flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp distilled white vinegar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 (12-cup) muffin pans with cupcake papers.

Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, add the egg.

In a small bowl combine the cocoa, vanilla and food coloring to make a thick paste. Add to the butter mixture.
