Here is the recipe and the Light Red Velvet Cupcake
Monday, June 7, 2010
This past Saturday Brad and I had a barbecue dinner party for a bunch of our friends to kick off the summer. I made a ton of food including homemade pesto flatbread, bbq pulled chicken, sweet potato fries and of course, dessert! I have always wanted to try Red Velvet Cupcakes so I grabbed an old recipe from my files. The cupcakes turned out wonderfully! I didn't know it at the time of baking and eating that this recipe was from Cooking Light. I would NEVER have known this was a "light" cupcake recipe. Actually, the lightness probably added to why I liked them: they were fluffy and didn't feel like lead in your tummy after eating. Knowing that these were light, I am bummed that I banished the cupcakes away to my husband's office. Please let me know if you've had success with other light versions of desserts since now my home is cupcake free!
