Red velvet cake is a classic dessert that everyone knows and loves. This stunning cake fits the bill for any celebratory event, but its bold crimson-red hue is especially appropriate for the holiday season.
TikToker @macy.blackwell has a recipe for an authentic old-fashioned red velvet cake that has been passed down through several generations. And it all started with her great-grandma Elizabeth.
“This is my great-grandma’s recipe and a special dessert we only enjoy during Christmastime. It does take some time and effort, but it is one hundred percent worth it,” Macy said.
Here’s how to make an enticingly moist and fluffy red velvet cake:
-1/2 cup of shortening
-1 1/2 cups of sugar
-2 1/4 cups of flour
-1 cup of buttermilk
