        this recipe from paula dean got great reviews but reviewers say to cut the food coloring amount in half and use marshmallow creme for the frosting and i would omit the coconut and nuts for this recipe.

        Show: Paula's Home Cooking
        Episode: My Grandmother's Table

        Cake:
        2 cups sugar
        1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
        2 eggs
        2 tablespoons cocoa powder
        2 ounces red food coloring
        2 1/2 cups cake flour
        1 teaspoon salt
        1 cup buttermilk
        1 teaspoon vanilla extract
        1/2 teaspoon baking soda
        1 tablespoon vinegar

        Icing:
        1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
        1 stick butter, softened
        1 cup melted marshmallows
        1 (1-pound) box confectioners' sugar
        1 cup shredded coconut
        1 cup chopped pecans


        Cake:
        Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
        In a mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter, beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition. Mix cocoa and food coloring together and then add to sugar mixture; mix well. Sift together flour and salt. Add flour mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Blend in vanilla. In a small bowl, combine baking soda and vinegar and add to mixture. Pour batter into 3 (8-inch) round greased and floured pans. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from heat and cool completely before frosting.

        Icing:
        Blend cream cheese and butter together in a mixing bowl. Add marshmallows and sugar and blend. Fold in coconut and nuts. Spread between layers and on top and sides of cooled cake.

          I remember the episode where she made this cake....looked sooo good.

          They had mini red velvet cupcakes at DH's company party this weekend and they were topped with fresh whipped cream and a mint leaf. Yummy and festive.

          Red Velvet Cake

          This works easiest if you have a KitchenAid mixer or other stand mixer.

          1/2 cup butter
          1 1/2 cup sugar
          2 eggs
          2 tbsp cocoa powder
          2 oz red food coloring
          1 tsp vanilla
          2 oz water
          1 cup buttermilk
          2 1/2 cup sifted cake flour
          1 tsp salt
          1 tsp vinegar
          1 tsp baking soda

          Cream butter, sugar and eggs. Make a paste of the cocoa and the red food coloring and then add paste to the creamed mixture. In a separate bowl, mix vanilla with the buttermilk and water. Add to creamed mixture alternately with flour and salt. Combine soda and vinegar and fold into batter -- do not mix this too much, just lightly fold it in with a spatula by hand rather than doing it with the mixer to avoid over-mixing.

          Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 mins if you are making cake (poured into two 9" greased and floured round cake pans) or about 18 mins for cupcakes. Test with a toothpick. When finished, let cool for 10 mins before turning onto cooling rack. Wait until completely cool to frost.

          Cream cheese frosting (which originally came from the Joy of Cooking book, according to my mom):

          Beat 8 oz. cold cream cheese (not rock solid, but it means you can use it straight out of the refrigerator) with 5 tbsp softened butter and 2 tsp vanilla (real vanilla extract, not imitation!!!!) until combined. Gradually add 2 cups powdered sugar that has been sifted after measuring. Continue to add more sifted powdered sugar until you reach a consistency and sweetness that fits your taste.

          No softening the cream cheese (though you do have to plan ahead with the butter).

          ENJOY!
