Sometimes you get tired of the same cakes and they are looks. So I came to you with Grandma Paul’s Red Velvet cake. It’s red velvet and it’s super good! Look how it’s made.
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon of salt
2 1/2 cups cake flour
3 sticks of butter, 2 for the cake, 1 (softened) for the icing
2 oz. red food coloring
2 tablespoons of cocoa
2 cups of sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon of vinegar
1 box of powdered sugar (16 oz)
1 cup marshmallows, melted
1 cup of grated coconut
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 package of cream cheese (8 oz)
Preheat the oven to 350°. Beat the eggs, add the sugar. Mix the cocoa and the food coloring. Add 2 sticks of butter and egg mixture; mix well. Sift together the flour and salt. Add to the creamy mixture alternating with the buttermilk. Stir in vanilla. In a small bowl, mix the soda and vinegar and add to the mixture. Pour into three greased and floured 8-inch round baking pans. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until done.
Combine cream cheese and a stick of softened butter. Add marshmallows and sugar and mix. Stir in the coconut and nuts. Spread between layers and on top and sides of cooled cake.
