Suncore Foods® Peony Buds Superbloom


1. CUPCAKES – Preheat the oven to 350F / 180C. Line or grease a 12-cup muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: lemon juice, vanilla, oil, milk, and sugar. Sift in the dry ingredients: flour, beet powder, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda. Using a spatula, fold the mixture until combined, then scoop the batter into the muffin pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. (*Note: after testing, I concluded that 3-4 tablespoons of lemon juice is necessary to preserve the bright color of beet powder. I would not recommend using another acid in place of the lemon juice.)

2. FROSTING – Add the butter to a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 2 minutes, until fluffy. Add in sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice. Continue to whip until smooth and fluffy, adding some milk as needed if the mixture is too thick. Use immediately or chill in the fridge until ready to use. To decorate: I also added @suncorefoods peony buds.
