Red Velvet Cake (GF)

Red Velvet Cake (GF)
(12 servings)


1½ cups Sugar
½ cup Vegetable Shortening
2 cups GF Flour
2 tbsp. Cocoa
1 tsp. Salt
2 tbsp. Water
2 tbsp. Red Food Coloring
2 large Fresh Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 cup Buttermilk
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tbsp. Cider Vinegar


In a large bowl, combine sugar, shortening, GF flour, cocoa and salt.  In a small bowl, mix water, food coloring and 2/3 cup buttermilk.  Add this mixture to the dry mixture and beat until well blended.  Add eggs, vanilla and remaining buttermilk and continue to beat until well mixed.  Now mix vinegar and soda and fold into the cake mixture.  Do not beat.  Pour the mixture into an 9x13 baking pan that has been greased and floured.  Place pan in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool completely before frosting.

Note:               Please use your favorite frosting or try this one.  1 cup milk, 1 cup granulated sugar, ¼ cup GF flour, 1 stick unsalted butter, 1.8 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. vanilla.  Combine flour and salt and add milk gradually.  Cook, stirring constantly until thick.  Cool.  Beat softened butter, sugar and vanilla in a mixer.  Add milk mixture and beat until fluffy.  Spread on cake and serve.  This does need to be refrigerated if any cake is leftover.
