Sunday, October 4, 2015
An interesting tasting cake, a soft flavor of chocolate with a deep red color cake.


Very intriguing.

Sometimes when you're in a hurry you need a quick fix, this will certainly not disappoint you.


Very moist and with just the right sweetness for frosting.


I enjoyed the frosting how it complimented this cake and flavors.

It's super moist because of the buttermilk!


This is the best way to make a boxed cake mix taste homemade!


It's convenient less expensive using a few staple pantry ingredients to “doctor up” the mix.


The results will be a perfectly moist, red velvet cake that tastes like it came from a bakery.

What is Red Velvet Cake?



Red Velvet is completely different than a chocolate cake, contrary to some belief.


In the 1800's they actually used natural dye to make the color of this cake


They also used almond flour, cocoa, vinegar, buttermilk, and coffee and a chemical reaction to those ingredients enhance the color of the cake naturally.


Totally different cakes between chocolate and red velvet and they do not taste similar in flavor.


Years later when the food and drug passed red food dye to sell, the cakes in bakeries started using red dye.


Today, the cakes that are made still rely on using red food dye.
