Red Velvet WASC

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hi there- I know this subject has been addressed in the past and I did search for it, but couldn't find what I was looking for.
My question is - Can I use WASC recipe for Red Velvet? I'm starting with DH Red Velvet cake mix, can I omit almond flavoring all together and just use butter and vanilla? Should I use buttermilk for the liquid?
I've only made RV once before and it was from scratch. I just can't bring myself to dump all that red food coloring into another cake!

Thanks JanH for moving this post to the correct forum! icon_redface.gif

I would definitely omit the almond extract, put vanilla instead. I would use whole eggs instead of egg whites too. I am not sure about the buttermilk, though. Hopefully someone else will chime in on this. I LOVE red velvet so I hope there are more insights on this thread.

I have been meaning to try MacsMom's recipe for my next RV order, but subbing buttermilk for the coffee creamer...

Here is Macsmom Red Velvet, it can be found in this document
Red Velvet Cake - MacsMom *If you don't have 100 mouths to feed, lol, just use 1 box white and measure out 1/2 of the chocolate cake mix, and obviously use half of all the other ingredients.
2 boxes white cake mix
1 box dark chocolate cake mix
2 pkg chocolate pudding
2 teaspoons salt
3 c flour
3 c sugar
3 c sour cream
3 cups vanilla coffee creamer
1 cup water
1/3 c oil
9 eggs
2 tablespoons butter flavoring
2 (1oz) jars Wilton red-red

I think I'm going to experiment and try it with the buttermilk in some cupcakes today.

I make red velvet wasc all the time and I love it! It's so much easier than making red velvet from scratch and is still sooo yummy! Here is my recipe:

1 Box DH Red Velvet Cake Mix
1 C all purpose flour
1 C white sugar
1 C sour cream
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1-2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/3 C water

Mix well and bake! Sometimes I also add a small package of chocolate instant pudding, but not always. Either way, I get a great cake icon_smile.gif. HTH

I haven't tried one yet. I've been saving the various recipes posted on CC in hopes of trying one soon. Be sure to copy and past the recipe into a word document, the links I had saved had been removed and it was harder to find. If you would like me to post the recipes or links to the other recipes let me know. Maybe I will try to bake one or two for Valentine's Day.

I make my Red Velvet cake using the wasc method all the time, and my customers like it a lot! The only thing I have not tried yet is putting chocolate pudding in it, I will try and see what happens. Even w/o pudding cake is rich and dense, great for stacking too. Happy baking everyone! icon_biggrin.gif
