Red Velvet Cake

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1 bottle red food coloring
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat eggs, 1 at a time. Mix in sour cream, milk, food coloring and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until just blended. Do not overbeat. Pour batter into pan. This recipe makes more than a regular cake recipe so you can either do 2 9" pans or a 9x13 and then have some left over for a few cupcakes (that's usually what I do). Bake for 35-40 min or until toothpick comes out clean. Frost with cream cheese frosting.


8 oz cream cheese
1/2 pound butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Cream butter and cream cheese until smooth, slowly add sugar. Add vanilla.


1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla

1 box (16 ounces) confectioners' sugar 

I can't remember which one I use...
