Servings: 30


  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 (1 ounce) bottle McCormick® Red Food Color
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4  cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 (16 ounce) box confectioners’ sugar


Step 1.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 30 muffin cups with paper liners.

Step 2.
Make cake: Mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

Step 3.
Beat sugar and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. 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 the prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full.

Step 4.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pans on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from the pans; cool completely.

Step 5.
While cupcakes are cooling, make frosting: Beat cream cheese, butter, sour cream, and vanilla extract in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until smooth.

Step 6.
Spread or pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes.
