Red velvet is red chocolate cake. I don't know of a red velvet cake recipe that is less chocolatey. Maybe others have a suggestion for you.

If you found it too chocolatey for your taste couldn't you just leave some of the cocoa out?

 

Replace the cocoa powder you leave out with an equal amount of plain flour if need be for the texture of the cake depending on how much cocoa powder you leave out.

Respectfully, a red velvet cake isn't a chocolate cake dyed red.  It's a tangy, sweet cake with a slight hint of cocoa.  If you take a look at Cakeman's red velvet recipe, his only calls for 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder.  If your recipe calls for three tablespoons, simply scale it back to one or two teaspoons and that will be more authentic.

Too late for your specific request, but this is a recipe I've tried, and it's quite good, and not very chocolately, IMO.  (Actually, the first time I made it, I was disappointed it wasn't chocolately, because I didn't know at the time that it wasn't supposed to be a "chocolate" cake in the traditional sense.  :))

My go-to recipe for red velvet cake is one written by Divas can cook. Here's the link: http://divascancook.com/the-best-red-velvet-cake-recipe-easy-homemade-moist-with-southern-flair/

It's the best one I've ever had and I've made A LOT of different recipes. Just be sure to line your pans with parchment paper, otherwise the cake will stick to the pan. It's so soft, moist, and flavorful without too much cocoa. Hope you like it!
