Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with baking liners. In a large mixing bowl, add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder.
Step 2: Sift together and set aside.
Step 3: In a separate bowl, add butter and mix on low for 1 minute or until creamy. Add in the sugar and mix for 30 seconds to one minute, or until light and fluffy. Slowly add in the eggs, milk, yogurt, and cocoa extract and mix for an added 30 seconds.
Step 4. Slowly add the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Mix on medium until well incorporated. Add 1-2 teaspoons of red food coloring.
Step 5: Fill each muffin cup 2/3 of the way with batter. Bake 18-20 minutes or until it springs back when touched.
Step 6: Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan and place on wire rack until completely cooled.
