I can still remember the very first time I ever had red velvet cake. It seemed almost surreal to me – how could a cake be so beautifully red and rich, and how was it possible that I hadn’t heard of it before? I just had to give it a try – and as soon as I had the first bite, I knew my life would never be the same. It was heaven! All I could think about was how I had been missing out on such a bliss for my whole life. Of course, this happened years ago already – and I’ve been doing my best trying to catch up! I’ve tried so many different red velvet recipes, some with a modern twist, and some a little more traditional. Like this one, for example.
Sometimes, it’s best just to stick to the classic recipe. This Vintage Red Velvet Cake is just about perfect, as far as I can tell. And that Vanilla Buttercream Frosting goes beautifully well with it, too. There’s a reason why this recipe is a classic.
