MawMaw's Easy Red Velvet Cake

This is my mawmaw’s red velvet recipe, super easy, super moist and super yummy

Gotta love the good things that come from the South!

MawMaw’s Easy Red Velvet Cake


  • 1 box butter cake mix
  • 1 T. Cocoa
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 C buttermilk
  • 1 oz red food coloring
  • 1 stick margarine
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 t. soda
  • 1 t. vinegar


  1. Mix cake mix with cocoa. Add vanilla, buttermilk, food coloring, margarine, and eggs. Blend until moistened. Stir together in separate bowl soda and vinegar, add to cake mixture. Bake at 375 in 9″ pans for 25-30 minutes
  2. I have used this recipe as cupcakes and other pan size just fine. I normally bake my cakes at 350 and watch them, so you do it how you feel :) Oh and I overpour a tinge on my buttermilk and add an extra egg for ever greater moistening, only if the cake is going to be consumed more than 2 days after making :)
