    yesdivascancook's Note:

    This may sound cocky, but seriously, stop looking for an amazing, homemade red velvet cake recipe because here she is!!! I've had three professional wedding cake bakers ask me for this ridiculously moist recipe. Not only is this red velvet cake "stick to the back of the fork" moist, but it's so soft with that perfect red velvety chocolate taste. Frost with whipped cream cheese icing and perfecto!!

      OMG, I have been looking for a red velvet recipe and have only found the oily blah recipes. However, I have to search no more. This recipe was great and I only made two small changes. I only used 3/4 cups of oil ( to avoid an oily cake). I also mixed the vinegar and baking soda together and added it to the the wet mix. This cakes needs to be made the night before, because something happens that makes you raise your hand and thank God when you taste it the next day.

      I was excited to make this cake after reading the reviews, but was a disappointed with the result. Though I like the idea of oil verses butter, and also the addition of coffee. I was surprised to see how little vinegar the recipe called for and that it did not require to combine it with the baking soda, which as I understand it important for the cake to rise properly. The addition of baking powder as well (I thought) gave it a starchy taste. However, I tried this recipe again with a few variations, and was not happy with that result either. Overall, it's an okay cake, but not what I would serve for a special occasion or a dinner party full of gourmet foodies.
