Enhanced Red Velvet Mix

I’ve played around a bit with doctoring the DH Red Velvet cake mix and here is what I came up with. This is onw my family’s new favorite cake.

Enhanced Red Velvet Mix


  • 1 box DH Red Velvet
  • 1 cup + 1 tbs. cake flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbs. oil
  • 1 tsp. white vinegar
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup + 1tbs. milk
  • Red food color to desired effect


  1. Pour cake mix into mixer bowl, sift in dry ingredients. Add all wet ingredients except food coloring. Mix for 30 sec. on low, then for 1 1/2 min. on med. Add red food color and stir on low. Bake at 325, timing depends on pan size, mine takes a bit over 1 hour for an 8″ round, 3″ deep when using the bake even strips.
