Red Velvet Cake

After making red velvet whoopie pies. We decided to give a red velvet cake a try. This cake had a beautiful red color and a delicious taste.

Ingredients: 1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 ounces red food coloring
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon white vinegar

Directions:
1. Grease two 9 inch round pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Combine the buttermilk, salt, vanilla, and red food coloring. Set aside. 3. In a large bowl, cream together the vegetable oil and sugar. 4. Beat in the eggs one at a time. 5. Stir in the cocoa. 6. Mix in the flour until just incorporated. 7. Add in the buttermilk mixture. 8. Stire together baking soda and vinegar, then gently fold into the cake batter.
9. Pour batter into prepared pans. 10. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the ceter of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.

Frosting Ingredients: 2 8oz. cream cheeses (at room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup heavy whipping cream
4 cups confectioner's sugar

Directions for Frosting:
1. Cream the cream cheese and confectioner's sugar together. Beat in the the vanilla and heavy whipping cream.
2. Frost the cake.

Happy baking,
