A Bit of Red Heaven

As I was enjoying my cup of coffee perusing some of my favorite blogs, I came across one from Anna Johnston in Australia for Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. I love reading about food memories and Anna shared a wonderful one in this post.

The husband loves red velvet cake, but quite frankly I don't make too many of them...in fact, I can only think of twice in 32 years that I made or attempted to make one. Anna's recipe inspired me to put on my apron, grab my scales to convert the measurements, and surprise the husband with a plate of red velvet cupcakes when he arrived home from work.

They were incredibly easy to make and tasted so good that we had to split a second one between us! The husband was absolutley thrilled.


This recipe made a really beautiful deep red batter...no pink here!
 
The cupcake papers did not want to cooperate so some of these look like they have crevices in them!

  
Thanks Anna for sharing your memories and your recipes!
