Granny's Red Velvet Cake

Use 2 9” cake pans 350˚ - 25 to 35 minutes or until done
(Should come loose from sides…can cook on parchment paper)


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp coco powder
¾ cups cooking oil
1 ½ cups sugar
2 eggs
½ of 1 ounce red food coloring
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla

Sift dry ingredients into a bowl: flour, baking powder, salt and coco.

Next, cream sugar and oil together. Beat each egg 1 @ a time into sugar and oil mixture. Add food coloring and make fluffy and add dry ingredients slowly.

Combine buttermilk and baking soda together and mix well. Then add this to above mixture. Add vinegar and vanilla to mixture.

PART 2 – SUGAR MIXTURE (NOTE: I find this to be an important step)

½ cup milk and ½ cup sugar …. Cook a little until it thickens some

After cake has completely cooled, pour sugar mixture over each layer.

Let completely cool again


Mix: 1 Cream Cheese
1 stick of butter (room temperature)
1 tsp vanilla
1 pound of confectionery sugar
