I've been playing with the idea of making a red velvet cake so, when I found this quick recipe on a Youtube channel, I said this was the moment! I will tell you right from the start that it was phenomenally tasty. It's been ages since I've enjoyed anything so delicious and eye-catching like this cake. Besides the taste, I really loved the quick preparation method - the cake will cool down in a few minutes and it's so tender that it doesn't require refrigerating for a long time.
I must admit that one of the reasons which stopped me from trying to make a red velvet cake was having to use food colouring. But eventually I said this won't be such a big problem if I do it only once a year. Unfortunately, using beetroot juice won't help, because it won't be able to create this amazing colour. On the other hand, you can do it without food colouring, only with cocoa powder, or even without - but then, it won't be the red velvet anymore.
My little girl doesn't eat cakes at all, she doesn't like them, she'd rather have a cucumber instead! I was surprised when she asked for a slice and then she declared it was the best cake she'd ever eaten!
The interesting fact was that I made this cake in the first part the day, by midday and in the afternoon, my sister and I were already tasting-enjoying it over a cup of coffee. Really quick and nice, you definitely must try it!
