This classic recipe for Red Velvet Cake is a family favorite of mine. We love making this chocolate cake in disguise for birthdays and special occasions in our house. And, it pairs just perfectly with our cream cheese frosting recipe.
Red Velvet cake is a classic among may people. It is our go-to cake for birthdays and special occasions and to be honestly, I didn’t even know it was a chocolate-based cake until I was a little older than I’d care to mention.
Today I decided to use my little mini cake pans to make this a three tired cake, but the recipe works perfectly for a regular 8” or 9” cake pans as well. This cake pairs perfectly with our cream cheese frosting recipe. Red Velvet Cake is a wonderful treat for Valentine’s Day too, because of it’s beautiful red hue (thanks to a bunch of food coloring, I might add).
The very first time I made this classic cake, I was working from Martha Stewart’s “Cupcakes” Cookbook, one of my very favorites and Istill have a splattering of red food coloring on my Frosty Tin Marshmallows apron to prove it.
Red Velvet is just such a classic, and I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. I’d love to know what other dessert recipes you’d like to see on the blog. Let me know in the comments below!
