Red Velvet Cake

This is a very dramatic looking cake with its unusual bright red color that is sharply contrasted by a creamy white frosting. Its origins are not really known as both the deep south and far north claim it as part of their heritage. Its deep red color really is just a traditional "Devil's Food Cake," with red food coloring added to the mix. Whatever its color, the truth is it is a very moist cake and a long time favorite.

Cake Ingredients

2 1/2 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons liquid red food coloring
1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda
