For the last two days, Mom and I have been baking (& cooking) up a storm!!! This weekend we challenged ourselves to perfecting the red velvet cake- which we did.
Saturday, we made red velvet cupcakes using a recipe we found online. They were totally scrummy and totally gone before Sunday, but we felt that something was still left missing. Come Sunday we turned to James Beard. When in doubt, go to James.
After two full days of baking, the verdict was clear...the Red Velvet Cake from American Cookery won the taste test hands down. Mom posted the recipe on her fabulous site, Living the Gourmet. Soooo, without further ado I present to you the link to THE perfect recipe for red velvet cake:
Wishing everyone a fabulous and lovely holiday!!!
