Red Velvet Cake
  • 1 sticks - real butter
  • 1 3/4 cups - sugar
  • 1 teaspoons - vanilla
  • 2 - eggs
  • 1 bottles - red food cooloring
  • 2 cups - all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups - powdered cocoa
  • 1 teaspoons - salt
  • 1 cups - buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons - baking soda
  • 1 teaspoons - white vinegar
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 2 packages - (8 oz. ea.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 sticks - real butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoons - vanilla
  • 4 cups - powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons - milk
  • Directions:

    For Cake:
    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

    Stir together your flour, cocoa and salt. Set aside.

    Grab your mixer and beat butter with sugar until pretty and creamy. Add your eggs and then the red food coloring. Slowly add your flour mix, alternating with the buttermilk until it's all combined. (Do not over mix.)

    Stir your baking soda in with the white vinegar and then add to your cake batter.

    Pour your cake mix into two greased and floured cake pans (Tip- I use cocoa powder instead of white flour for this. It adds a little extra cocoa goodness to your cake). Bake 30 to 35 minutes. You can test with a wooden tooth pick in the center to make sure it's done.

    For Frosting:

    Grab your mixer and whip the cream cheese and butter together until it's light and fluffy. Add the vanilla. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Add the milk 1 teaspoon at a time (adding a little more if the mixture is too thick).
