How to Make a Red Velvet Cake From Scratch


  • ½ cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp red food coloring
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/1 tsp baking soda
  • Icing
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar

Some easy steps to Follow:

  1. Start by greasing two 9-inches round pans and by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cream shortening and sugar until it’s very light and fluffy. Add eggs one by one and beat well.
  3. Cream cocoa and red food coloring to make a paste. Meanwhile, combine vanilla extract, salt, and buttermilk together. Add the flour into the batter while alternating with the buttermilk mixture until everything is well incorporated.
  4. Combine baking soda and vinegar and gently fold into the batter. Remember not to beat or stir it into the mixture.
  5. Pour the batter into the pans and bake for up to 30 minutes or until the cake comes cleans after a toothpick test. Place on a wire rack to cool.

For the icing: On a low fire, mix the flour and milk while constantly stirring. Remove from heat and while the mixture is cooling, cream the sugar, butter, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the mixture to the cream and beat until it reaches a good consistency. You can now add the frost in the cake after it has been cooled completely.
