Moist Three Layer Velvet Cake


3 3/4 cups self rising flour
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar
2/3 cups butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups of buttermilk
3 ounces red food coloring (3 one-ounce bottles)
2 cups vegetable (corn) oil
White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter, at room temperature
1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, at room temperature
1 (4 ounce) bar of white chocolate, melted over low temperature in the top of a double boiler
3 cups of confectioners' sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 to 2 Tablespoons cream
1 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 teaspoon salt



Preheat oven to 325°degrees.

Prepare three 9-inch cake pans by lining them with parchment paper on the bottom, then lightly butter and lightly flour.

Sift together flour, sugar, baking soda, cocoa, and salt in a mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix eggs (beaten) vinegar, buttermilk, vanilla extract, corn oil, butter, and finally, the food color.

With mixer, blend the wet ingredients into the flour mixture until thoroughly blended, but not overly mixed, as you don't want to add too much air to the mix.

Fill pans with cake batter only about half-way up the side, because the cake will rise.

Bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Test with a toothpick in the center at 45 minutes and bake whatever time necessary for the toothpick to come out clean.

White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Using an electric mixer, beat together  butter and cream cheese until well incorporated and fluffy.

Place chopped white chocolate into microwave and heat for 30 seconds, stir and heat for 30 seconds more, stir until smooth. ( or melt in the top of a double boiler over low heat)

Add melted white chocolate to butter and cream cheese mixture beating until smooth. Add confectioners' sugar a cupful at a time.

Add vanilla extract last, and the cream depending on what consistency you prefer.

Add chopped pecans and mix well.

Let cake cool thoroughly,.


Place the first layer of cake on your cake dish, and then a row of frosting, repeat with all three layers of cake.  Use a spatula to spread the frosting on the tops and sides of the cake.
