i made a batch of redvelvet cake... the batter was red red when i popped it in the oven and when it came out it was brown!!
What did i do wrong!??
Anyone out there Pls help...
Red Velvet cake does have some chocolate in it. Could this be why it turned brown?
Were you able to look inside the cake itself to see if it's a little bit red?
When I make red velvet cake, It's inside color is similar to a dark brick red, not a vibrant ruby red.
I hope that helps.
is it a box mix or from scratch?
from scratch does resemble more of a brown-ish red. a box mix is more brick red.
it also depends on how much cocoa and red food coloring you put in
What food coloring did you use? I have done just 1 bottle of the mccormick food coloring because most don't like the idea of eating so much red dye. I have done the Wilton no taste red and it give a brown/reddish color which is fine for me.
You might want to try two bottles of the mccormick if you have time to make another batch. Or a bottle and half.
Thanks for the reply TOKAZODO,AUNDREA & TEGE-CAKES...
I made a other batch (sracth) with a bit more food coloring and only 1tsp coco. It came out better that time. Everyone loved it! Yummyyy
