These red velvet muffins are quick and simple to make. You need a good red velvet colouring to make the colour stand out. I use gel food colourings but use what works for you.

For variety, you can add some chocolate chips into the dry ingredients and add a few more chocolate chips on top when they are ready to go into the oven.


  • 385 grams plain flour
  • 15 grams cocoa powder
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 200 grams caster sugar
  • 125 ml vegetable oil
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250 ml plain yoghurt
  • red food colouring gel ( (affiliate))


  • Preheat the oven to 180C and then line muffin tray with paper cases.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl
  • Put the wet ingredients into a jug together with some red food colouring and mix together
  • Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and mix together
  • Divide the mixture into your prepared muffin tray
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden on top and springy to the touch. Test with a cake tester or toothpick to make sure it is properly cooked in the middle.
  • Let the red velvet muffins cool in the tray for 5 minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • You can eat them as they are or dust some icing sugar on top.
  • Enjoy!
