Red Velvet cake is a Southern
recipe made with the unique combination of the flavors of
buttermilk, vinegar, a touch of cocoa and, of course, red food
coloring. It makes an amazing red layered cake with cream cheese
frosting, often garnished with chopped pecans.
This adventure started in 2001 when, in a
hurry, I attempted to bake a small Red Velvet sheet cake using my
reliable recipe from memory.
Something went wrong and instead
of a cake I ended up with a pan of the most delicious and moist Red
Velvet brownies I could imagine.
After numerous failed
attempts to recreate the accidental Red Velvet brownies, I finally
got it right.
Then I started thinking what else I could do
with this yummy cake batter. Why not incorporate
this delicious flavor into other recipes? So, I did.
With over 100 recipes in development, I tried, retried and tested to ensure the distinct Red Velvet flavor is
unmistakable in each recipe. Here are 53 of them.
