well i have baked couple of other basic cake recipes, but red velvet cake recipe wasn’t the easy one to bake it. i had to try it 3 times till i get a near perfect and moist one. hence i can say that this recipe is tried and tested one and you would not be disappointed with the result. in the initial attempts i had prepared with buttermilk, but the results were not pleasing. the main reason to use buttermilk was due to its easy availability in every kitchen. but i had to fall back to the vinegar and i was comfortable with the end result.

  • furthermore, use oil instead of butter if you are preserving the cake and eating later. as butter hardens once refrigerated whereas oil doesn’t and keeps cake more moist.
  • also to bake in microwave convection mode pre heat and bake at 180 degrees for 40 minutes. and to bake in cooker check out how to bake in cooker.
  • finally, eggless red velvet cake recipe is traditionally prepared with cream cheese frosting, however you can replace with vanilla frosting used for black forest cake recipe.
