    The Real Cake Baker's Note:

    I have been on a mad search for a moist Red Velvet cake. I have gone from recipe sites to recipe sites and my search continued until I decided to just create it myself, and Eureka I have found it!

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350. Grease three 9 inch round pans. Sift flour, salt and baking soda together and set aside. If using cocoa powder mix that with the dy ingredients too.
    2. 2
      Melt semi-sweet chocolate with 1 tablespoon of milk. Set aside but do not let harden. Or if you are using coca powder just sift it in with the flour mixture.

      This was my fifth stab at a red velvet cake. While it was not dry, it wasn't what I would call extra moist. The cakes I've made with oil or with a mixture of oil and butter were moister. Also, even though I like the definite chocolate taste, the cake comes out looking too brown. The whole point of this cake is the dramatic presentation. So I would either add less chocolate or more red food coloring.

      This cake is extremely delicious..I made some modifications...I don't like sour cream, so I used a teaspoon of vinegar. Also I used 2 ounces of red food coloring to offset the extra cocoa. Rather than using all purpose flour, I used cake flour and added one extra egg. I strongly recommend the recipe. I made two in one night!!!!! It was a tremendous success.

      It was really tasty but I did add just a tablespoon more buttermilk to thin out the liquid.
