Red Velvet Cake




Red Velvet Cake was mentioned on 'Oprah' once, and I had to try it. My boys love it!

Ingredients:
250 g butter, very soft
3 eggs
1 1/3 cups caster sugar
2 teas cocoa
60 ml red food colour
2 1/2 cups flour, sifted
1/2 teas salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 teas vanilla extract
1 teas baking soda
1 teas vinegar
White frosting:
1 1/2 cups milk
3 tbs flour
1 teas vanilla extract
250 g butter
1 cup icing sugar
Method:
All ingredients should be taken out of fridge to warm.
Preheat oven to 180*C, prepare 2 cake tins (22 cm). In the bowl of a mixer cream together butter, sugar and eggs until fluffy.
Mix all wet ingredients (buttermilk, red colour, vanilla and vinegar), add to the bowl mixing for a minute more. Sift all dry ingredients (cocoa, flour, soda, salt) together and add to the bowl, folding carefully.
Pour into tins, and bake for 25 min. Let it cool.
Frosting:
Mix flour with a little milk into a smooth paste. Rest of the milk put in a saucepan to heat, add vanilla. When hot add the paste to it, cook until thickened. Let cool.
When cool, put in a bowl together with butter and icing sugar. Mix with high speed until creamy and fluffy.
Frost the top of first layer with a 1/3 of frosting and set the second layer on top.Frost the entire cake with remaining frosting. (One part of frosting can be coloured for decorative effect.)
Let it cool for at least an hour before serving.
