Red Velvet Cake Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 01:27:00
Today I am publishing this enticing and velvety red velvet cake  recipe which is in great demand during birthdays and on valentine day. The cake looks deep red in colour mainly due to the red colouring agent which is used as one of the ingredients in the recipe but you can even use beet root juice and avoid the colouring agent. Even though both the ingredients such as cocoa and vanilla flavour are used in this recipe, you cannot name it as a chocolate cake or as a vanilla cake but rightly name it as the red velvet cake mainly due to the colour component. Traditionally, we use cream cheese frosting for this red velvet cake recipe but you can replace it with butter frosting too. So why delay, lets proceed with the procedure.

    1. Always add vinegar at the end when your are about to bake a cake. You will get a light and fluffy cake.
    2. Preheat the oven 10 minutes before baking the cake.
    3. You can add 1 / 2 cup of beet root puree for that extra bright red colour.
