Instructions
Egg Free Red Velvet Cupcakes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake tin with 24 liners
  2. In a large mixing bowl, using the paddle attachment of an electric mixer, cream the butter, applesauce, and sugar together.
  3. In a small bowl, use a spoon to mix food coloring, salt, and cocoa into a paste. Wet food coloring will want to bead up. Press spoon firmly against the bottom of the bowl to press coloring into cocoa. Keep blending until a paste-like consistency is formed. This may mean adding a bit more coloring as needed.
  4. Add colored cocoa to the sugar mixture. Mix on medium speed until well blended.
  5. In a separate mixing bowl whisk together flour and baking soda.
  6. Add flour mixture a little at a time to the sugar mixture, alternating with the addition of the buttermilk. Mix on medium speed until well blended.
  7. Fold in vinegar and vanilla extract using a spatula. Do not over mix.
  8. Fill each cupcake tin 2/3 full and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on rack before icing.
Cream Cheese Butter Cream
  1. In a large mixing bowl of an electric mixer with the whisk attachment, beat cream cheese and cutter until soft and smooth.
  2. Add powdered sugar to the cream cheese mixture one cup at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition.
  3. Add salt and vanilla extract and mix on medium high speed until well blended and icing is fluffy.
