Ingredients for the Cupcakes:

4 tbsp unsalted butter
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2½ tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbsp Red food coloring
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup buttermilk
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1½ teaspoons vinegar


 Preheat oven to 180 degrees c. 
Take a Non -stick muffin/cupcake pan,line pan with paper liners or grease cake pans. 

In a small bowl, sift flour,add baking soda and salt set aside.

In a large bowl, Add the butter and sugar on the medium speed of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.  
Add the egg,beating well.
In a small bowl add red food coloring, cocoa powder and vanilla make a thick paste.  Add to the batter bowl and beat well,make sure that all the color gets mixed well. 

Then in the bowl add half of the buttermilk and Add half of the flour and mix until combined.Again repeat the process with the remaining buttermilk and flour. Beat on high until smooth.

Then, in an another small bowl add baking soda and vinegar quickly add into Batter Bowl and beat for another couple of minutes until completely combined and smooth.

Pour the batter evenly into the pan and bake for about 20 minutes, or take a thin knife or skewer or toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcake comes out clean.

Then remove cupcakes from the pan and Allow cakes to cool on a wire rack,cool completely.

You can even do the frosting ;)
