Martha Stewart's Red Velvet Cake
I had the disillusioned idea of trying to cakes bake for 30 people. It comes as no surprise that soon I decided to order one at a really nice pastry called YUFKA in Hannover. Still this idea made me bake another recipe by Martha Stewart. A recipe I wanted to try out for a very long time.
THE RED VELVET CAKE. It's big. It's red. It's absolutely delicious...
I used the dough of this recipe and the frosting of this southern red velvet recipe.
And afterwards I gotta say that the frosting did not turn out the way I expected it. It was way to hot during the day and I think all of my ingredients already started to melt before entering the oven. Still, my dear friends paid a visit to taste this bastard with some wine and we absolutely loved it. It has a very rich taste which you come to realize is because it has a hell of a lot oil in it.
As long as you don't eat it everyday - it shall be no problem I think. I did freeze a piece of cake for a special occasion or more likely a bad day I need lots and lots of sugar in my body.
Anyways here goes the recipe:
NOTE TO MYSELF: Add foodcolouring after inserting vinegar and baking soda. It results in a much more strongly colored dough. And use lots of colouring, don't be stingy!
