Easy Red Velvet Cake Recipe

1 box yellow or butter cake mix
1 Tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 c. buttermilk
1 bottle red coloring
1 stick butter
3 eggs
1 tsp. soda
2 tsp. vinegar

Mix cake mix and cocoa. Add vanilla, color, butter, eggs and milk, blend until moistened. Then beat for 2 minutes. Mix in small cup soda and vinegar. Add to cake batter and beat 1 1/2 minutes at medium speed. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.

NOTE: You may frost this cake with a store bought cream cheese or white frosting. If you want to make your own frosting…we have included a cream cheese frosting recipe.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

1 box powdered sugar
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1/2 stick butter
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp. cream, if needed for easy spreading

Slice cake layers in half and frost, stacking cut sides against baked sides. (I find it easier to slice layers if I put in freezer for about 5 to 6 minutes.) Frost tops and sides.
