Red Velvet Cake

Today’s cake was inspired by one I saw at The Eleven City Diner in Chicago’s Lincoln Park. Todd and I had lunch there this week, and while we were too full to order dessert, I admired their red velvet cake from afar and made a note to bake one as soon as I got home.  […]

Imperial’s Red Velvet Cake Roll

Red Velvet Cake Roll

Today’s recipe is from Imperial Sugar, who sent a link yesterday describing it as a last minute holiday dessert. Now I don’t always click on email links, but we’d been invited to dinner with friends and I wanted to take something a little more festive than chocolate cake. Red velvet cake in the form of […]

Red Velvet Cupcake Comparisons

by on February 10, 2011 · 15 comments

The McCormick red velvet cupcakes were a hit, but not with Fuzz’s class. Instead of taking them to school, I served them to Fuzz’s girl scout troop. The girls enjoyed them, but I was anxious to try another recipe because while I liked the McCormick red velvet cupcakes, I thought they were too chocolaty to be true red velvet. If you like your red velvet cake really chocolaty, you’ll be happy, but if I want chocolate then I make a chocolate cake. Red velvet should be red.

And thus the red velvet cupcake quest continues.

Red Velvet Cupcake Cones

Valentine Cone

Fuzz’s class is having their Valentine’s Day party this week and I offered to bring some treats. The problem is, I can’t decide what. Fourth graders are opinionated and like interesting things, so I have to choose carefully. Thinking red velvet cupcake cones might be fun, I made a test batch this afternoon using a […]

Red Velvet Cake

It’s similar to the original Waldorf Astoria version, but uses butter instead of shortening and cake flour instead of all-purpose or White Lily. If you compare this recipe with a few others, you can see it has less fat. It’s not quite as heavy textured and if made right, it still comes out moist enough. What I like best about this one is that it’s got the traditional red velvet flavor with very little chocolate and lots of whatever it is that comes together and makes red velvet taste like red velvet.
