by Sunny

As you see on the picture this cake is something different. The cherry on the top is just a decoration made by choice, feel free to miss that one out or replace it wit anything you like. 
The cake has a nice smooth flavor and its not too heavy for the stomache, its a nice cake to present to your friends or family.


For the base
  • 1 tea cup of milk
  • 2 and a half teacups of flower
  • 1 and a half teacups of sugar
  • 1 tea spoon of baking soda
  • 1 tea spoon of salt
  • 1 tea spoon of cacao powder
  • 1 teacup of cream (room teperature)
  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • 1 red food paint (like easteregg paint is good)
  • 1 tea spoon vinegar
  • 1 tea spoon of vanilla powder
  • 60 grams of cocos

For the glaze
  • 450 grams of cream cheese
  • 4 teacups of powder sugar
  • 220 grams of butter (room temperature)
  • 4 teaspoons of vanilla sugar

First you are going to prepare the cream for the cake. Mix the 1 cup of cream with the eggs, food paint, the vinegar and the vanilla powder, mix this into a smooth mixture.

Prepare a round baking forms (you need atleast 2 in order to have layers) for the cake, lay a layer of baking paper on it or butter it if you dont have any baking paper around.

Take a big bowl, add all the flower,the 1 and a half cup of sugar,  the baking soda, the salt, the cacao and the cocos. Start mixing that on low speed with the mixer.

Now mix the cream mixture with the flower mixture together and continue mixing it for another minute or two.

Sip the mix into the prepared baking forms and put them in the oven for 30 minutes at 175 degrees celcius (pre-heated). After the baking you need to let the layers cool out, just put them on the table for 30 minutes approx to rest.

Now for the glaze you need to mix all the ingridients together with the mixer by starting at slow speed for a minute or 2.. then you put the mixer on maximum speed for atleast 5 minutes, this is very important because the cream cheese will need time to mix with the butter smoothly.

Now smear the upper side of the first layer with the glaze mixture (dont use all of it), then place the second layer upon it and smear the whole top of the cake with the rest of the glaze. Decorate with cheerrys or anything you like for a topping.

Let the cake rest for another 15 minutes, after that enjoy your delicious Red Cake.
tip: don't keep this cake in the refrigiator.

  1. Gorgeous color! May I confirm that a tea cup is basically a measuring up? This is a red velvet cake right? Also, just regular milk not buttermilk?
