Start with 2 cups of all-purpose flour and 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder for that deep red color and chocolatey flavor.

Cream together 1 cup of unsalted butter with 2 cups of granulated sugar until light and fluffy, providing the cake's moist texture and sweetness.

Butter and Sugar

Add in 4 large eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated for a smooth batter.


Mix in 1 cup of buttermilk to enhance the cake's tenderness and moisture.


Include 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract for a subtle, aromatic undertone.

Vanilla Extract

For that iconic red hue, add 2 tablespoons of red food coloring (adjust to desired color intensity).

Red Food Coloring

Combine 1 tablespoon of white vinegar with 1 teaspoon of baking soda to react and create a light, fluffy texture.

Vinegar and Baking

A pinch of salt (about 1/2 teaspoon) to balance the sweetness and enhance flavors.
