Recipe by Anita Harris

Oh...YUM, YUM, YUM!!!! Red Velvet Cake is my all-time favorite cake and this one is the best! I have had this recipe for years and it always comes out perfect every time. It is soooo moist it practically melts in your mouth. Try this one-you won't be disappointed.

This recipe is by far the best one I've tried. I did tweak it a bit too, and the end result was AMAZING. I could not be more satisfied with the results. SO light, SO moist! I used 2 1/s C cake/pastry flour, 1 1/2 C of vegetable oil instead of 1 3/4 C, and I added 1/2 C of sour cream (as suggested by another reader) and added 1 TBSP cocoa powder. I used this recipe to make mini cupcakes, however! Baking time was just 10 min. Turned out AWESOME, and now everybody else wants a copy of the recipe! Thanks for sharing!
