Red Velvet Cake
“It is not the taste that delights, whereas it is the color that excites.”
The bright red color is what we see and get excited about this delicious delicacy called the red velvet cake. But the question is that from where does this red color of the cake comes from? These days we see people adding food colors to the cake batter to get the lush bright red color. In the earlier years, the red color of the cake was due to the reaction of cocoa powder, vinegar, and buttermilk. So, basically, the anthocyanins present in the cocoa powder change the color and give the cake a red finish. Whereas, this trick cannot be used these days, as the processing of the cocoa powder has made it a base that neutralizes the acidity of the vinegar or baking soda. So, these days, the bakers prefer using red food color or beetroot juice in the batter.
