Ingredients used in this recipe

Flour: use the right amount of flour for any cake recipe because it is very important for the texture of the cake base. Do not use too much flour. You can use OO flour or regular refined flour for this recipe.

Eggs: Eggs give fluffiness to the cake. But do not over mix the batter. We need air in the batter. For whisking the eggs, you can use a hand whisk or electric whisk.

Buttermilk/ milk: If possible use buttermilk because it gives a little bit tangy taste. But you can alter this with normal milk. Here I used normal dairy milk.

Oil: oil gives the soft texture to the cupcakes. You can also use butter.

Cocoa powder: do not skip this because traditional red velvet cake batter requires the best quality cocoa powder.
