I forgot how much I love red velvet cake! Courtesy of The Pour House pub in Toronto.


Here is a great recipe for a deliciously moist and fluffy red velvet cake:


Red Velvet Cake
from Ink Lemonade
2 3/4 cups cake flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk (room temp)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 ( ounce) bottle red food coloring
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs (room temp)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter 2 (9-inch) round cake pans.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, sift together cake flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt; whisk until combined.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together buttermilk, oil, food coloring and vanilla until combined.
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter and sugar until light and creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs until well combined. Gradually beat in 1/3 of flour mixture, alternating with 1/3 buttermilk mixture (scraping down sides of bowl occasionally). Repeat until all ingredients are combined; continue to beat until ingredients are well incorporated and batter is smooth.
Divide batter into prepared cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees F, for 32-35 minutes, or until center of cake springs back when lightly touched, and outer edges pull away from pan. Cool pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes; run a knife around outside edges and invert cakes onto wire racks to cool completely.
Cream Cheese Frosting
24 oz softened cream cheese (3 packages)
6 oz softened butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 tsp vanilla extract + more to taste
4 cups of powdered sugar + more to taste
With a mixer on medium speed, mix cream cheese and butter together. Add vanilla. Mix in sugar gradually.
Assemble the cake: Spread 1/3 of the frosting on the first layer, place the second layer on top and press lightly to secure. Spread 1/3 of the frosting over the top of the cake, and use the remaining 1/3 for the sides.
Happy New Year!!
