Red Velvet Cake

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
2 eggs
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.
