Waldorf Astoria Red Cake
March 30, 2011

I have a copy of a Waldorf Astoria's recipe for Red Velvet cake and I've made it often (just last week was the lates) Do yourself a favor sub the shortening with canola oil. You'll be amazed at the difference in moistness. In a bind (if you don't have buttermilk) add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to enough milk to make one cup and let sit atleast 5 minutes. Although many Southerners would faint, switch to a cream cheese frosting. The tang of the cream cheese frosting complements this cake very well.
