1/3 Photos of Red Velvet Cake by Cook's Illustrated
There's a lot of recipes for this cake on here - but from what I found this one is a little differant and while it has a lot of steps - the end results is so elegant and lovely I want to post. I got this out of the Cook's Illustrated Holiday Baking Magazine and it graced the cover. By definition, Red Velvet Cake contains buttermilk, vinegar or a combination for both flavor and color. They noted that the more acid added, the brighter the cake looked and the more tender it's texture so tey included both buttermilk and white viniger. It does make a special NOTE: This recipe must be prepared with natural cocoa powder. Dutch-processed cocoa will not rise or yield the proper color.
