What Is Red Velvet?
Red velvet has become one of the most popular flavors in the past few years. Red velvet recipes are especially trendy around Valentine's Day due to their red color, but they are also becoming increasingly popular around Christmas. Despite their vibrant red color, red velvet recipes are enjoyed all year round due to their status as a traditional Southern dessert.
Every time you eat red velvet cake, the eternal questions most likely spring up: what is red velvet? What gives it its color? What flavor is it, exactly? Red velvet is often thought of as a chocolate cake that has been dyed red, but it is slightly more complicated than that. Although the flavor of red velvet cake is closely related to chocolate, it also features a hint of acidity, due to the traditional addition of vinegar. The vinegar also helps to give the cake its classic red color. The cocoa powder in the cake reacts with both the vinegar and buttermilk to create the signature reddish-brown shade. Red food coloring, however, helps to brighten up the cake's red color even more.
