The red velvet cake is a staple in American cuisine, and it was developed in the Victorian era. The cake has a long history and the color in the original red velvet cake comes from a simple mix of vinegar and cacao. The reaction of vinegar, cacao, and buttermilk tends to reveal the red color cacao has, but also makes the cake fluffy.

Tips to make the best red velvet cake

  1. Vinegar – is it essential? Vinegar is not essential in making the red velvet cake, but if you want to add more fluffiness to to your cake, add 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to the batter.
  2. Powder or liquid color – this is completely optional, but if you are using liquid colors you may want to add ½ tablespoon of additional almond flour for every ounce of food color you are adding.
  3. You want your cake to be very moist. In order to achieve this result, if you’ve baked your cake think that it should be moister, drizzle it with simple syrup. To make the simple syrup combine ½ cup water with ½ cup powdered Erythritol. Simmer for 5 minutes and drizzle over the cake. This will also make the frosting sit better on the cake.
