My first attempt.
|In a bowl, mix together flour and salt|
2 1/4 cup cake flour
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 bottle red food coloring
3 tbsp cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp vinegar
1 cup milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs.
In separate bowl, mix cocoa and food coloring; saving some coloring for entire batter.
Mix baking soda and vinegar separately.
This is a substitute for buttermilk. 1 cup milk mixed with 1 tbsp lemon juice.
Mix in cocoa and food coloring with creamed sugar and margarine. Add more food coloring if necessary for color.
Alternate parts of flour and buttermilk into margarine.
I threw in some chocolate chips and almond bits.
Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes in a 9 X 13 pan, or 2 9 inch rounds.
Frost with cream cheese icing.
