Sempoi Red Velvet Pirates' Cuppies

Saw this recipe title in a friend's fb page sometime ago but had not got the chance to try until I found "Perfect cupcakes, cookies & muffins" recipe book. It has the recipe for cuppies, almsot simialr to what my friend posted. Made this last week on a pirate's theme with cream cheese topping. Kids liked the color & topping but not so the cake, maybe because its cinnamon was quite strong, more adult's kind of taste I guess :)

(makes 6 standard cuppies)

3/4 cup plain flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/4 teaspoon soda bicarbonate
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/3 cup buttermilk (1/3 cup milk + 1 teaspoon vinegar or plain yogurt)
1/2 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
1/3 cup veg oil
3 teaspoons red food coloring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

- preheat oven 180'c
- in a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon powder, soda bicarb & salt.
- in another bowl, using electric mixer on medium speed,  lightly beat egg,
