Duncan Hines Red Velvet cake mix - Page 2

post #16 of 58
I've tried the chocolate pudding but Dr. Pepper sounds great!

I'm not a fan of red velvet...my stepmom makes a homemade one and no offense but my doctored cake mix one is more moist than hers.... I have never really had a red velvet cake I *love*...its just not one of my favorites, and I can't see the attraction. haha. Especially knowing I'm eating all that food coloring. Yuck!

I like CakeMan Raven's red velvet, or is it CakeRaven Mans red velvet, I can never remember. It's the best I've found so far. Also make a good white velvet cake, just leave out the food color.

Well shoot! I can't get to it here from work because it's posted blog style apparently. Darn firewalls!

I do use the DH Red Velvet...doctored as follows with cream cheese frosting (triple torted) it is my most requested cake flavor...

DH Red Velvet Box
4 eggs
1 cup oil
1 cup milk
1 sm pkg Cheesecake Flavor instant pudding

I bake it low (340) and until done. Make sure you frost the day before it is due -- this cake wants to sit in its frosting for 24 hours before being eaten.

Chasey, Here is the recipe

Cakeman Raven "Southern Red Velvet Cake"

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon fine salt
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk, at room tempature
2 large eggs, at room tempature
2 tablespoons red food coloring (1 ounce)
1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil and flour 3 cake pans (9 X1 1/2). In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. In another large bowl, whick together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla.
Using a stand mixer, mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined and a smooth batter is formed.
Divide the cake batter evenly among the prepared cake pans. Place the pans in the oven evenly spaced apart. Bake, rotaing the pans halfway through the cooking, until the cake pulls away from the side of the pans, and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out, clean about 30 minutes.

Remove the cakes from the oven and run a knoife around the edges to loosen them from the sides of the pans. One at a time, onvert the cakes onto a plate and then re-invert them onto a cooling rack, rounded-sides up. Let cool completely.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 pound cream cheese, softened
4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
2 sticks unsalted butter (1 cup), softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or with a hand held electric micer in a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, sugar, and butter on low speed until incorporated. Increase the speed to high, and mix until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Reduce the speed of the mixer to low. Add the canilla, raise the speed to high and mix briefly until fluffy.

I get rave reviews on the Red Velvet Redux recipe I posted here on CC:

http://cakecentral.com/recipes/7573/red-velvet-redux-easy-durable

One thing I love about it is that it isn't crumbly when cut.
