I have always loved Red Velvet Cake but never wanted to take the time to make it 'scratch'. I found this recipe in a magazine and it is delightful. Tastes like a 'scratch' cake and is quite simple to prepare.
MIx ingredients for cake with an electric mixer as directed on the box. Pour into a 13x9 baking pan or 2 - 9 inch layer pans greased and floured. Bake at 350* for 25-35 minutes or until done when checked with a toothpick. Cool cakes completely before frosting.
To prepare frosting combine the flour and milk, whisking till smooth. Cook over medium heat in a saucepan to form a smooth paste. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside until cold. In a mixer bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the cooled paste in small amounts and whip until incorporated and the frosting is no longer 'grainy' from the sugar. Add vanilla and frost the cake.
