I'm sure it's the recipe from Cakeman Raven.

However, it is so easy a caveman could do it. icon_biggrin.gif

You should be able to type in Cake Man Raven... I just went and looked and it says it's currently under construction.

I did a taste test a while back with 6 different RV recipes and this one was by far the best.

Cakeman's Recipe

1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cocoa powder

1 cup of buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp. distilled vinegar
1 1/2 cup of oil
1 ounce red food coloring
1 tsp. vanilla

Dry Ingridents:
Sift together all dry ingredients.
2-1/2 cups of cake flour, 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of fine salt and 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder.


Wet Ingredients:
Add liquid in an electric mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until well incorporated.
1 cup of buttermilk, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon of vinegar (white distilled), 1-1/2 cups of vegetable oil, 1 oz. of red food coloring and 1 tsp. of vanilla extract.

Slowly add dry ingredients to bowl, until all ingredients are combined.

Bake @ 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.



Frosting: 4 cups of Confectioners Sugar, 1 lb. of cream cheese (room temperature), 1 lb. of butter (softened) and 2 tsp. of vanilla. extract.

I am fairly new to red velvet cake. What is the texture of red velvet cake supposed to be? Is it a little on the dry side? I tried a RV recipe (not Raven's) and I thought the tast was good but a little dry.

I don't think any cake should be on the dry side. My RV cakes are always as moist and delicious as any of the others I make.

My RV cake, made from Cakeman Ravens recipe, turned out dry as a rock. Not sure what happened. It tasted really good but D-R-Y!

KerrieD Posted 8 Jul 2010 , 3:43am

I did try Cakeman Raven's recipe and although I'm not a RV expert...I thought it was good...very moist too!

MessiET Posted 8 Jul 2010 , 5:50am

When I made this recipe it was delicious the first day, but by the second day the cake was dry! icon_sad.gif

JGMB Posted 8 Jul 2010 , 11:30am

I had tried 2 other RV recipes before CakeMan Raven's, and both batches went right into the trash (which means they were really awful, because I hate wasting cake!). Then, I gave Cakeman's a try and it was wonderful!!! I took the cupcakes to a church event that night, and people were "raven" over them -- sorry, I couldn't resist! They froze well, too.

SandiOh Posted 8 Jul 2010 , 11:40am

I have tried ALOT of red velvet recipes, and my favorite by far is from Nancie Mcdermott's "southern cakes", for cake, for cupcakes I like the recipe from American Profile/Pastry Queen (both the same recipe). I don't like the RV made from oil.

SandiOh,
Would you mind sharing the recipe???? THANKS!!!
