    Would love some tried and true recipes for Red Velvet cake. Some with beets and some with food coloring. Only tried and true ones please so that I am not making disappointments. Could you used tomato soup in a Red Velvet cake and add other things?

    I used the McCormick recipe but I made my own modifications.  I used oil instead of butter,  used buttermilk and added some sour cream,  and I added less coco powder.  It came out the way I wanted it..  Not brown, moist but dense..[​IMG]
