I don't like to give a bad review but this was NOT good. I used 8 inch round pans. and cooked it for 40min as the recipe said and it was dry.... it wasn't burnt but the cake was rock hard. and it didn't have much of a taste. it was kinda bland. Not a true Red Velvet cake.
I made this cake for my hubby's birthday last night and it was quite good. A fun heirloom recipe to try out. I made it with your icing recipe also. I had my doubts that the frosting ingredients would come together but they sure did and it turned out delicious! One suggestion I would have is if using 2 round, 8 inch pans as I did, 40 minutes is too long for cooking, start checking the cakes at about 30 minutes or so for doneness.
