For the cake
  1. 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
  2. 2 cups (or 1-3/4) sugar
  3. 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  4. 1 tsp salt
  5. 1 tsp baking soda
  6. 2 eggs
  7. 1 ½ cups oil
  8. 1 cup buttermilk
  9. 1 tbsp vinegar
  10. 1 tsp vanilla
  11. 1 oz red food coloring
For the icing
  1. 8-oz cream cheese
  2. 1 stick (8-oz) butter
  3. 1 tsp vanilla
  4. 3-4 cups confectioner’s sugar (depending on how sweet you want it; I tend to stick with 3 cups)
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour two 8-inch pans or prepare 24 cupcake molds with cupcake liners.
  2. 2. In a large bowl, stir the eggs with a whisk. Add remaining liquid ingredients (oil, buttermilk, vinegar, vanilla, and food coloring).
  3. 3. In a smaller bowl, combine all dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda).
  4. 4. Pour the flour mixture into the liquid mixture. Mix just until combined.
  5. 5. Fill cupcake molds or baking pans. Bake for about 18 minutes for cupcakes, or 30 minutes for 8-inch cakes.
  6. 6. For the icing: Whip the cream cheese and butter. Add vanilla and sugar. Whip until light and fluffy.
