Southern Red Velvet Cake

An easy Southern red velvet cake that’s super moist, delicious, and made entirely from scratch.

Picture a moist vanilla buttermilk cake with a touch of cocoa and a tangy frosting.


– all-purpose flour – granulated sugar – baking soda – apple cider vinegar – vegetable oil – buttermilk – red food coloring – cocoa powder – eggs – vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, buttermilk, sugar, oil, vanilla extract, and red food coloring. 

In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, salt, and unsweetened cocoa powder. 

Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and mix until well combined but don't over mix. It's fine if you see some lumps in the batter. 

In a small bowl, combine the apple cider vinegar and baking soda. Once it foams up, add it to the cake batter and fold it in.

Tips and Recipe Variations

– Do not overmix the cake batter or overbake the cake. Overbaking the cake for even a minute can cause it to dry out.
