Red velvet muffins

After the success of the Simple red velvet cake, I wanted to try the same recipe for muffins. The composition is very tricky when baked in a large pan as it may not rise evenly. But for muffins, this is not the case.

  • 213g all purpose-flour
  • 1 teaspoon sodium bicarbonate
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 100g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 177ml milk
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla essence
  • red food coloring
  • 190g butter (room temperature)

  1. Preheat the oven at 170ºC.
  2. Start by separating the whites and the yolks.
  3. Beat the whites with a mixer and add the sugar when they are foam.
  4. Add all the yolks and mix just until they are incorporated, that should be max. 30 seconds. Do not overmix as the foam will slowly decrease.
  5. Mix the flour with cocoa powder, vanilla sugar and salt.
  6. Add the dried ingredients in the foamed eggs, one spoon at a time and stir gently with a spatula with up and down movements. Do the minimum movements as possible to conserve the foam but insure that the dried ingredients are well combined. 
  7. Pour the composition into muffin shells.
  8. Bake it in the oven at 170ºC for 25 minutes.
