Red Velvet Cake Jars
These little desserts are perfect for Valentine's Day or as little gifts to give your loved ones. These mini cakes cook up quickly and with a little stacking are so pretty once you frost them.
I used my red velvet cake recipe because I love it and think it’s the absolute best. Be sure to save one for yourself.
– all purpose flour
– baking soda
– apple cider vinegar
– vegetable oil
– vanilla extract
– red food coloring
– unsweetened cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, sift the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, and salt, set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix the 2 eggs, vegetable oil, buttermilk, vanilla extract, red food coloring, and sugar. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix.
In a bowl mix the baking soda and apple cider vinegar. Once it foams up, add it to the cake batter. Pour the batter into a 9 inch greased baking dish and bake for 27-30 minutes.
To make the frosting, mix the cream cheese and butter for about 2 minutes. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, mix for about 3 minutes on high speed then place in a piping bag.
Tips and Recipe Variations
- I used very little cocoa powder for this recipe only because I wanted the red velvet cake a very vibrant red.
