    Recipe Introduction

    This is different than my recipe but sounds good. I have the original recipe from the 60's and prefer that.

    List of Ingredients

    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 tablespoon white vinegar
    3 large eggs
    1 (1-ounce) bottle liquid red food coloring
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tablespoons cocoa
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup buttermilk
    Cream Cheese Frosting


    Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy; gradually add sugar, vanilla, and vinegar, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition. Add food coloring, beating until combined.
    Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; add to butter mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed until blended after each addition. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9-inch cakepans.

    Bake at 350 for 20 to 22 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 5 minutes; remove from pans, and cool on wire racks.
