Waldorf Astoria "Red Velvet" Cake
This recipe that is used in my family is called Waldorf Astoria Cake – but this is more commonly called Red Velvet Cake. I made it while at home last weekend.
Cream butter, sugar and eggs. Make paste with food coloring and cocoa and add to above. Add salt and buttermilk alternately with the flour; add vanilla. Add baking soda and stir until completely mixed in. Then add vinegar and stir until mixed in. Bake in greased cake pans (makes 2 9″ rounds) in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Frost with Cooked Waldorf Astoria Icing.
