What does red velvet taste like??? - Page 2

post #16 of 19
I just did a RV cake for a wedding. I used the Confetti Cakes recipe because it has at least a smidgen of flavour due to the larger than normal amount of cocoa used in it. It turns out to be a very dark mahogany colour. I don't like making this cake because I can't eat it icon_biggrin.gif ...the red colouring does me in: headache and stomachache. BUT, it is super moist.

RV has a slight chocolate taste.The RV recipe I use has Hershey's cocoa and some red food coloring. Lately (the past 3 yrs) the RV cake is always blood red with cream cheese frosting.The frosting is good but the cake has no taste.The RV that I make is frosted with a white buttercream type frosting.

The Red Velvet recipe I use makes a super moist cake that has a tangy buttermilk flavor and a hint of chocolate. I also add chopped pecans to my RV batter which adds another layer of richness. If you have never had RV cake before, think of it as a butter flavored cake with just a hint of chocolate.

If you want to use a box RV mix, you can boost the flavor by adding a 4oz box of instant chocolate pudding, 3 tablespoons of light corn syrup (Karo), and 1 tsp butter extract.

Thanks for this! I bought some just because it was sale and I was curious. I'll give it a try!
