Valentine's Day is just around the corner and here's a great dessert to celebrate the holiday. What could be more appropriate than a heart-shaped red velvet layer cake?
The combination of buttermilk and white vinegar in the batter makes the cake layers really moist and tender. A generous two tablespoons of red food color give it that trademark deep, rich color. No red velvet cake is complete without cream cheese frosting. I particularly like this version because the addition of buttermilk powder cuts the sweetness and provides a really nice tang.
Happy Valentine's Day!
