Red Velvet Cake

After spending a few days of fun and sun in Chicago, we returned home late yesterday refreshed and rejuvenated. I had chores to attend to, but was dying to bake and couldn’t ignore the fact we had self-rising flour, red food coloring and buttermilk all on hand at the same time. That rarely happens, so I […]

Last week I made a batch of red velvet cupcakes. They were good, but I thought they could be better and decided that over the next few months I will be baking and reviewing more red velvet cupcakes.   To help me with this very important research, Louise has kindly volunteered to do some guest blogging with […]

Sorry I’m posting late, but here’s today’s recipe — another red velvet cake.   I got this one from a local cake store, but have seen it used by many Southern bakers as well.  If you or the people you are baking for are looking for a moist cake, this is it!  Just be careful not […]

The clipping included. A) An article (since deleted!) about Maggie Moos’ red velvet cake (featured on Unwrapped) and B) […]

I’m not really sure how or why I got the idea for this, but here it is – a cross between a red velvet cupcake and the ever popular black bottom cupcake. If you try these, let me know because I’ve only made them once. They’re less sweet than red velvet cupcakes and have a […]

Ah, red velvet cake. Is there a better cake to end the week with? Well, yes. But I had a bottle of red food coloring, a cup of soon-to-be-bad buttermilk, some butter extract and 1/2 cup of Crisco to use up, so I went with red velvet. Besides, a few months ago I’d promised I’d […]

Red Velvet Cheesecake

by on June 2, 2007 · 2 comments

Update:  This is a pretty old post.  Since then, my tastes have chanced and I really don’t think I would eat a red velvet cheesecake.  That being said, when I first made this it was a huge hit.  Everyone loved it and it’s become quite popular.  Once was enough for me. ———————————————————————————————————————————- I don’t think […]
