This is the Red Velvet cake recipe I grew up on. It is a dense, moist pound cake and the only way to make Red Velvet cake! The other (cake like)Red Velvet recipes here can't hold a candle to this one. This IS a true Red Velvet Cake. The title should say pound cake though. I think the people that have complained or not liked this particular recipe are looking for the cake like type with icing between the layers. The kind like you buy in the grocery store. To me that's not REAL Red Velvet cake though. This is like my grandma and mom always made and will always be a family favorite! If you are looking for a great moist Red Velvet pound cake, this one won't disappoint you. If you like the grocery store version...there have them in the bakery section.

When I saw that this recipe didn't call for vinegar, I should have known to just keep looking for another recipe. But I gave this one a try. Not too terribly disappointing, but I have to agree with the review that calls this cake a butter cake. Red velvet cakes are dense (thanks to the vinegar) and moist. This cake was buttery with no density and the flavor of a butter cake, not a chocolate cake, which is really what red velvet cake is.

This recipe was easy and quick but my cake was dry without a lot of flavor. I prefer the Hershey's Red Velvet Cake recipe.
