Mini Red Velvet Cakes


Cake Batter
  • 1-1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 (1 ounce) Red Food Color
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
 Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 8 ounce plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 (16 ounce) box confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Mix in sour cream, milk, food color and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until just blended. Do not overbeat. Spoon batter into 30 paper-lined muffin cups, filling each cup 2/3 full.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cupcake comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire rack 5 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely. Frost with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting.
  4. Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting: Place yogurt directly on a piece of paper tower to let it soak up the extra water.  When it is dry enough, it won't stick to the paper tower.  Beat yogurt, butter, sour cream and Vanilla Extract in large bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth.

Found this recipe on and it is simple enough to make! I cut down the ingredient by half and it's about the amount for 1 batch of cakes with the Bake Pop Pan.  Replaced the cream cheese with yogurt and use sugar substitute instead of confectionery sugar to reduce the calories.  I also replaced half the sugar in the batter with milk powder to make it less sweet.  I don't really like super sweet stuff.

Love the yummy cream on top.  Didn't know yogurt can replace cream cheese!

They look so red while baking.
But when finished baking, they dun look very red at all....

Bite size little worries about eating too much.  Love the "cream cheese" on top....though I have replace the cream cheese with yogurt, it taste just like real cream cheese.
