red velvet cakes

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ive tried desperately to make a good tasting red velvet cake but it always turns out with this odd taste. I get that when ever I use baking soda and dont knw if its the reason. Redvelvet is most clients first choice and its my desire to satisfy this need.

Do you want to bake from scratch only or will a tweaked boxed cake mix do?

This one right here is my all time fav soft and moist yummy cake and goes great with cheesecake lol

2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
2 Tablespoons unsweetened, cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1-2 oz. red food coloring
1 teaspoon of white distilled vinegar
½ cup of prepared plain hot coffee (don’t skip this ingredient)



Preheat oven to 325.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the sugar and vegetable oil.
Mix in the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla and red food coloring until combined.
Stir in the coffee and white vinegar.
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients a little at time, mixing after each addition, just until combined.
Generously grease and flour two round, 9 inch cake pans with shortening and flour.
Pour the batter evenly into each pan.
Bake in the middle rack for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not over bake as cake will continue to cook as it cools.
Let cool on a cooling rack until the pans are warm to the touch.

I tried this recipe but it was too liquid so I added an extra cup of flour. I looked at a couple of videos in Youtube and the batter looked thicker. I wont know how it taste until tomorrow when I carve it and put buttercream. I will let you know how it turns out. Thank you

All Recipes has one that does not use oil.  I despise RV, but that's the best recipe I've found.
