Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°. Line two 12-cup muffin pans with paper liners.

Whisk together dry ingredients in a bowl; set aside.

Blend sugar and eggs in a bowl with a hand mixer on medium speed until ribbons form, about 5 minutes. With mixer running, add oil in a stream until blended. Mix in food color and vanilla until incorporated.

Mix half the dry ingredients into butter mixture, followed by the buttermilk and vinegar, then remaining dry ingredients; blend just until incorporated.

Fill liners to the top with batter and bake until a toothpick inserted in centers of cupcakes comes out clean, 20–25 minutes. Cool cupcakes in pan 20 minutes, transfer to a rack to cool completely. Frost with Classic White Icing.

With the mixer running, add the oil for the cupcakes in a thin stream so it emulsifies with the sugar and eggs.
