Hello! My name is Vivian and I am a passionate baker who has been baking ever since I was 3! Thank you for checking out my blog and I hope you enjoy my website!

Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake

This cake worked out really well! I just wished I had more red food coloring so that the color would have popped a little more, but overall it was pretty good!

Original recipe HERE

INGREDIENTS for my modified version

  • 2 cups (250g) All-Purpose Flour

  • 1 cup (200g) Sugar

  • 1 tsp Baking Soda

  • 1/2 tsp Salt

  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

  • 1 cup (240ml) Vegan Homemade Buttermilk (1 cup soy milk + juice of 1/2 a lemon)

  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 1/3 cup (80ml) Vegetable Oil

  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

  • 1 fl oz (28ml) Vegan Red Food Dye

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F or 3 or 4 on a gas oven). Combine the first 5 ingredients in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl the butter-milk, then add in the remaining liquid ingredients. Whisk wet into dry and pour batter into cupcake moulds or a cake pan. Bake for around 30 minutes or until it comes out clean when a toothpick is inserted.

For frosting, I used my coconut butter-cream recipe (post on blog), which looked EXACTLY like cream cheese frosting!
