Lifestyle blog A Night Owl Blog recently revamped the traditional red velvet cupcake baking recipe by adding alcohol to turn these desserts into red wine cupcakes. The recipe creatively folds the wine into the batter to give the cupcakes their quintessential scarlet hue as well as an unexpected robust flavoring.
Traditionally red velvet cupcakes feature beet juice or red food coloring to create the red coloring in the chocolate batter. A Night Owl Blog cleverly opts for the addition of red whine and coffee in this recipe to change up the flavoring slightly while still adding cocoa. Because the wine is baked into the cupcakes the alcohol percent is neutralized making this a great dessert for both adults and children to enjoy.
