Red Velvet Cake
2 ½ C AP flour
¾ tsp. salt
1 T + ¾ tsp. baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups white sugar
¾ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
2 ounces red food coloring
1 1/2 (12 ounces) packages cream cheese, softened
1 ½ sticks butter, softened
6 cups confectioners' sugar –more or less to taste
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash of popcorn salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans – optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 8 inch round pans.
In a large bowl, mix together sugar, oil, and eggs. Add food coloring and vinegar to buttermilk. Add baking soda, salt and baking powder to flour. Add flour mixture and buttermilk mixtures alternately to the sugar mixture. Mix well. Stir 2 teaspoons vanilla into batter. Pour batter into prepared pans, approximately 1 ½ C per pan.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes (18-20 minutes for my oven), or until done. Remove from oven, and cool on wire racks.
Mix together butter, confectioners' sugar first, then add the cream cheese and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Stir in nuts. Frost cooled cake.
