Its seems everyone is asking questions about red velvet cakes so of course now I want to make one!
Anyone have any tried and true Red velvet cake recipes? It would be a big help if it worked for high altitude baking....
Doesn't have to be high altitude.... just yummy!
I use the recipe from the cakeman raven.
Only I make it 1 1/2 times the stated amounts, because I like my layers taller. Also, I use my own cream cheese frosting recipe. His recipe looks like it would make an icing that is a little on the thin side.
But, the true recipe calls for a icing that has cooked milk and flour in it????
So, it's just a matter of preference.
The story goes that the recipe originated at the famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel???
I found a recipe here that was called "waldorf astoria red velvet cake" or something to that affect.
I'm a true fan of Paula Deen's red velvet recipe, the only thing I do differently is I swap the Buttermilk and Oil because its far too oily if you do how much she calls for. Moist and so delicious!!!! (Just realized now, I use the cupcake recipe, I wonder if you can translate it for a cake). Good luck!
I just made the most delicious red velvet-from a box. I know people think the box kind is gross, but I swear this was the best I've ever had=)
I actually made 2 boxes at one time. Here's the recipe
Mix as directed on box, omitting 2 eggs.
Replace Meringue Powder(as directed on can) for those 2 eggs
Add 1 family size box vanilla instant pudding
Bake at 325 until done.
Yummy...and I used cream cheese frosting
everyone raved about this cake
