Red Velvet Cake

                                                       I have been making this cake for years, but couldn't find it on                                                       

my blog when I was ready to make it. So here it is. It is a favorite

at our house.

Printable Version
1 1/2 cups Crisco
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon vinegar
2 oz. red food color (I used 1 oz.)
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon butter flavoring
Used 2 - 9" cake pan that have been sprayed and floured or 3 8" pans
Cream Crisco, sugar and eggs. Add flour, cocoa, salt, vanilla, and buttermilk.  Fold in red food color, baking soda and vinegar.  Bake 350 degrees - 30 - 35 minutes.
1 cup milk
1/4 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup Crisco
1 stick butter
1 cup granulated
It is very important to follow the directions
Cook milk and flour over low fire to pudding stage. Allow the pudding mixture to cool completely. While it is cooling, cream butter, Crisco, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Add this mixture to the cooled pudding mixture and beat like crazy.  You want the sugar to dissolve.  You can taste it to make sure there is no grit from the sugar. If you add the butter before the mixture is cooled, it will melt and make a mess. I know this from experience.
