Red Velvet Cake by Divascancook - Page 3

post #31 of 35
Cakefat or anyone else who has experience with this what natural food color do you use?? Myself and my sis in law both have allergies (mine not as bad) and would love to find an alternative! I was looking at some powdered beet root but wondered what that would do to the cake flavor and texture

Hi I'm new here.

I'ved used that red velvet cake recipe from Divascancook a few times before and it always turned out awesome (even with buttermilk substitute). Like somebody said earlier, the coffee brings out the cocoa flavor. I personally like that about the cake, but if you don't want the cocoa flavor to be prominent, you can:
Reduce the amount of cocoa powder to 1 tablespoon ( her recipe calls for 2 tablespoons).

Omit the coffee from the recipe altogether or,

Do both.

One more thing about the cake. Since the recipe calls for 2 cups of sugar, the cake tends to be rather sweet. You can reduce the sweetness by reducing the sugar to 1 1/2 cups (or 1 1/3 cups). Well that's all I have to say.

Hi/welcome

 

I think I remember adding less sugar once too...maybe it was written in the comments below? 2 cups of sugar is a lot- at least to me.
