red velvet cake



Here's what you are going to need:


2 1/2 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoon cocoa powder

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
1 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) red food coloring
1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


For The Cream Cheese Frosting

2 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
2 sticks butter (1 cup), softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
Finely chopped pecans

Here's what you need to do:

Cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and mix well. Mix in the buttermilk. Add the food coloring and vanilla.

In a medium sized bowl, sift together the flour, salt and cocoa.

Add flour mixture to the liquid mixture a little at a time.

In a small bowl, combine baking soda and vinegar. Stir in to the batter.

Divide the cake batter evenly between the cake pans.

Put the pans in the oven being careful not to let the pans touch. Bake at 350 degrees F. until the cake starts to pull away from the side of the pans, and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean. About 20-25 minutes.

Run a knife around the edges of the pans to loosen the cakes, remove them from the pans and allow to cool completely.


For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, mix together the cream cheese, sugar, and butter on low speed until well blended. Beat on high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla.

Refrigerate until it's fairly stiff before using. After frosting the cake, sprinkle the top with pecans.

I hope you enjoy this Red Velvet Cake Recipe!
