Someone told me that red velvet cakes were hard; but after I found this recipe, I make it frequently. It has a good flavor and looks pretty when cut. Enjoy.


1 pkg fudge marble cake mix

1 tsp baking soda

2 eggs

1 &frac; cups buttermilk

1 bottle red rood coloring

1 tsp vanilla extract


5 Tbsp all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

1 cup margarine, softened

1 cup sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

In a mixing bowl, combine contents of cake mix and baking soda. Add eggs, buttermilk, food coloring and vanilla; blend on low until moistened. Beat on high for 2 minutes. Pour into two greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire rack to cool completely. For frosting: whisk flour and milk in a saucepan until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Cover and refrigerate. In mixing bowl, cream margarine and sugar. Add chilled milk mixture; beat for 10 minutes or until fluffy. Stir in vanilla. Frost between layers and top and sides of cake.

Use a box of German chocolate cake mix with pudding in the mix; make the cake according to directions on the box but add 4 tablespoons of red food coloring. Frost with a can of cream cheese frosting! Enjoy. I've been making my red velvet like that for years (forgot where I got the idea from).
