Skinny Red Velvet Cupcake




Gong Xi Fa Cai, Happy Chinese new year to all! We celebrated the long 4 day weekend with lots food and moviesJ
 With Valentine’s day around the corner let me share a skinny version of the all time favorite Red velvet cupcake with a hint of chocolate flavour  You can always cheat a bit and add the classic cream cheese frosting which is the classic combo. The recipe is adapted from the Cookbook Sweet and skinny by Marisa Churchill, so far I tried about 4 of her recipes and came out splendid! Most of the recipes are low fat and whole wheat and you can toss down it down with no guilt feelings.
So wait no more..lets whip up some red velvet cupcakes for the Valentine’s day!
