Red Velvet Cake

I got this recipe from Kothiyavunu...Halved it and baked...Its simply superb...As we dont like frosting I dint do that.



All Purpose Flour - 1 nd 1/4 cup
Vanilla Extract - 1/2 tsp
Cocoa Powder -1 tbsp
Red Food Coloring - 1 tbsp(I used gel  and about 1/2 tbsp only..so colour is light.)
Buttermilk - 1/2 cup
Unsalted Butter - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 cups
Eggs -1 large
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
White Vinegar - 1/2 tsp 
Salt - 1/4  tsp 

Method of Preparation :

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 8 inch pan and set aside.
2. Mix well the flour,cocoa powder and salt in a bowl. 
3. Mix the red colour gel in buttermilk and keep aside
4. In a large bowl, beat the butter until creamy and soft. Add the sugar and then beat well for 3 to 4 minutes,until mixed, stopping to scrape down the bowl now and then. 
5.  Beat in egg and vanilla.
6. Add one third of the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beat well, then beat in half of the buttermilk. Beat in another third of flour mixture, then second half of buttermilk. End with the last third of the flour mixture, beat until well combined, making sure to scrape down the bowl with a spatula.
7. In a small bowl, combine the baking soda and vinegar and stir well and mix this evenly into the batter.
8.  Transfer the batter to the prepared cake pan and smooth the tops and bake for 25-30 minutes. or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 
9. Let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then on the wire rack. The cake is too soft can break easily,so handle softly.
10. Serve with frosting or as it is....
