ADoes every one of you put vinegar and baking soda combination into the batter of red velvet cake?
AHi Ceyda! I don't. I put in natural flavouring instead of that. I like the creamy taste haha.
I also use buttermilk in mine..But yes i do use Vinegar.
I think the best tasting red velvet recipes have that. I use it...and the bakery I worked for used it. I think that combo is what gives red velvet its unique flavor.
The Cake Bible's recipe does not use vinegar or baking soda.
I think personally it is for that desired taste... I have never not used it but would love to hear if anyone has ever done both and had a taste off so to speak... I guess I am a creature of habit sometimes because that is the way I was taught by my Nonna and have never differed
AI do a regular chocolate cake with less coco powder, baking soda, baking powder, butter only and buttermilk. No vinegar and no oil. It's a very rich recipe.
