Dessert recipes: Green Red Velvet Cake

Grandmamma Lucille is allergic to red food dye, so when we make a red velvet cake, we make a green to go alongside it!  But the best part is how festive the cakes look side by side!


2½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1½ cups sugar

1 cup buttermilk

1½ cups vegetable oil

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1-ounce bottle green food coloring

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature

½ cup (one stick) margarine, at room temperature

1 pound confectioner’s sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup chopped pecans (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans.
