The best red velvet cake you have ever tasted!
"kathrynpaine - This cake is a very heavy and dense cake but oh so moist! You could certainly experiment with the oils, but my family has been making this recipe for years and years and we think it is perfect. Paula Deen has a Red Velvet Cake recipe that is made with butter and has a lighter fluffier texture so you may want to give her recipe a try if you think this one has too much oil. Thanks for your comments. "- rltalbott

Beat oil and sugar together and eggs, one at a time. Mix cocoa, vanilla and food coloring in small bowl. Add to oil mixture. Mix in flour and buttermilk, alternately. Add salt and baking soda and mix well. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Cool completely and frost.
For frosting combine butter and cream cheese and then add confectioners sugar and vanilla and whip until light and fluffy. Stir in pecans.

esnyder_9 1 year agoThis cake is very good but I found the recipe to be poorly written. Maybe it's my lack of experience with red velvet cakes but it would have been nice to know that the cake had to be divided into two pans to cook correctly. I had to cut the oil back to 1 cup and I used 2 cups of confectioners sugar for the icing. Otherwise this recipe held up really well when I married it with a cheesecake.
Acloggingtons 1 year agoJust finished making this and my god is it good. The 'one box' of confectioners sugar threw me off for a second, but 1.5 cups did the trick. Will make again.

Kathrynpaine 2 years agoI made this cake and was wondering if the oil amount was too much. I also think butter might suit me better. Until I experiment with the ratio of fats, I can't recommend this recipe.
