Red Velvet Cake Recipe Paula Deen

The Red Velvet Cake is a really tasty and spectacular cake of American origin. In addition to a slightly acidic taste, its peculiarity is precisely the beautiful bright red color that creates a contrast with the white color of the cheese frosting, with a smooth and velvety texture: a chromatic combination that makes it perfect also as a party dessert, perhaps in the roll- shaped variant!

The Red Velvet Cake, like the New York Cheesecake, is one of the most popular American sweets in the United States and best known in the world.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups cake flour

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon salt

3 sticks butter 2 for cake, 1 (softened) for icing butter

2 oz red food coloring

2 tablespoons cocoa

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 (16 oz) box confectioner’s sugar

1 cup melted marshmallows

1 cup shredded coconut

1 cup chopped pecans

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese

How to make Red Velvet Cake

Preheat the oven to 350F. Prepare three 8-inches round baking pans. Grease and flour them.

Beat eggs and sugar together then add cocoa and food coloring. Add 2 sticks of butter in egg mixture and mix them well.

Combine and sift the flour and salt then add to egg mixture alternately with buttermilk. Add vanilla and blend.

In a small mixing bowl, combine soda and vinegar and add it to the mixture.
