Has anyone ever tried this red velvet cake recipe. She uses self rising flour and sour cream instead of milk.






1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened to room temperature

2 1/2 cups sugar

6 eggs

3 cups self-rising flour (If you use plain flour, for each cup of plain flour, add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder to covert to self-rising flour.)

8 oz. sour cream

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

(2) 1-oz. bottles red food coloring


Beat 1 cup butter at medium speed with electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add 2 1/2 cups sugar, continuing to beat until light and fluffy. Add 6 eggs, one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Stir together 3 cups self-rising flour and 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder. Add to butter mixture alternately with 8 oz. sour cream, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla and (2) 1-oz. bottles red food coloring. Stir until well blended. Divide batter into 4 equal parts, and pour batter into (4) 9-inch cake pans that have been greased and floured. Use 2 racks to bake the 4 layers in a 350 oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in each comes out clean. Remove cake pans from oven and set aside and cool to room temperature before frostin
