The red Velvet Cake recipe is one of the most loved and famous cakes on the internet. The reason why it is so famous is that it not only tastes great but is also rich in health benefits too. Red velvet cake is a type of chocolate layer cake prepared using cocoa, buttermilk, and red food coloring. This recipe will yield a moist, tender cake with a rich cream cheese frosting that pairs very well with the sweet taste of red velvet. It has a vanilla flavor.
Let’s get started with ingredients:
- Cake flour
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Baking soda
- 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- Mix up the wet ingredients starting with some unsalted butter and granulated sugar.
The recipe makes one 9 x 13-inch cake, perfect if you’re serving a small party. The ingredients needed are 2 cups sugar, 1 cup butter or margarine, softened (2 sticks butter), 2 eggs, 4 tablespoons cocoa powder, and 3 drops of red food coloring.
Cake Baking Method
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Prepare a 9-inch (23 cm) cake pan by spraying it with nonstick spray and lining the bottom with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
- Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; set aside for later use in frosting the cake layer(s).
- Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter until creamy; beat in vanilla extract and salt until combined well into the butter mixture (about 1 minute).
Beat in eggs one at a time until incorporated into butter mixture – about 30 seconds per egg added to batter mix can be done this way before adding the next ingredient so make sure mix is done thoroughly between each step if possible otherwise keep mixing until mixed well enough!
- Repeat the process until all ingredients are added together well enough so that no chunks remain visible after mixing together then add sifted flours/cocoa/baking soda/salt mixture/color to wet ingredients while constantly beating on medium speed with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer machine attachment turned up high enough speed so the batter doesn’t stick anywhere inside the container itself which would cause sticking issues later when trying not only making sure everything sticks also but adequately getting out cleanly without ruining any cakes due to improper cleaning methods; this way you’ll ensure no loose crumbs left behind during cleanup time afterward either!
