Yeah I know Valentine's Day is so commercialized and often referred to as "lame". But I thoroughly enjoy celebrating Valentine's Day with Ryan. We like to have a romantic dinner followed by an amazing dessert. What follows after that is none of your business (ahem).
To keep with the Cupid spirit, I baked red velvet cupcakes for my co-workers (they constantly nag). People have often asked me for my red velvet cupcake recipe. I have made many versions of red velvet, but I particularly like the flavors of sour cream and peppermint in my mine. It gives it a kick which is pleasant and *different* from the traditional red velvet recipes.
Add it to your next batter (1 cup of sour cream for 24 cupcakes) and a 1/2 tablespoon of peppermint extract for a non-boring treat.
Happy Valentine's Day!
