I am a red velvet kind of girl. I love anything chocolate, and somehow, adding the red color just makes it feel more fancy. If you are anything like me, then you’ll love this cake.

Red velvet bundt cake   While baking this the other morning Trey asked, “What are you making?” And I said, “A red velvet bundt cake. You’d like it. It’ll have a cream cheese glaze.”

You might not know it by looking at him, but he’s a cream cheese kind of guy. While I am a red velvet kind of girl. I love anything chocolate, and somehow, adding the red color just makes it feel more fancy. If you are anything like us, cream cheese or chocolate fans, then you’ll love this cake.Red velvet bundt cakeThis would make an excellent holiday cake too. It’s super easy to make while still looking pretty cute. And if you’re making food for other people it’s always a bonus if it turns out cute. ūüôā

Red Velvet Bundt Cake,

1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon red food coloring
1 teaspoon white vinegar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder

First, divide this recipe in half if you want to do the marbled look. It can be tricky to divide a recipe, the key is to start with the eggs. If a recipe calls for an odd number of eggs, it’s probably not a great idea to try and divide it into two parts. But, since this recipe calls for two eggs we can more easily cut it in half to make two batters that will be two different colors.

Also, make sure that only one of the batters gets the red food dye and cocoa powder. First whisk together the wet ingredients: oil, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla extract and vinegar, In one of the bowls also add in the food coloring. Then stir in the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In the red bowl also add the cocoa powder. Lightly coat a bundt pan with cooking spray. Spoon the batters into the pan randomly. You want to avoid creating all one layer of the same color batter.

Use a knife to gently swirl the batter around a little. This will make the cake look marbled once baked. Now bake at 350¬įF for 40-42 minutes. Until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool before adding the glaze.

Cream Cheese Glaze, makes about 2 cups

4 oz softened cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
a pinch of salt
3-4 tablespoons whole milk

With an electric mixer whip the cream cheese. You really want your cream cheese to be softened first because this will ensure your glaze won’t have any lumps. Add in the sugar and salt and blend together until smooth. Add in 3 tablespoons of milk and whip together. If the glaze still seems too thick add another tablespoon of milk.

Cosa fare in autunno?

31298-Hello-Autumn

Si comincia a sentire davvero come l’autunno e non potremmo essere pi√Ļ eccitati! Ogni stagione ci piace fare una lista piena di cose divertenti o piccoli tradizioni che vogliamo fare prima che la stagione ci passa. Se sei lo stesso, ecco alcune idee divertenti per aggiungere alla vostra lista.

1. Tiriamo fuori la crockpot!

Amo cucinare con il mio crockpot (a volte chiamato un fornello lento). E ‘facile e l’odore di una zuppa calda o qualsiasi altra cosa che sto facendo riempie tutta la casa. Yum! Uno dei miei preferiti: maccheroni e formaggio.

2. Cuocere i biscotti.

E ‘tempo di dedicarsi¬†al forno, ora che il condizionatore ¬†sta probabilmente prendendo la pausa invernale. suggeriamo cookie, crostate, torte, biscotti di zucchero, e tanto altro..

6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c7c89b85970b-800wi

3. Fare il chili.

Per me, il chilo¬†√® il cibo perfetto per l’autunno. Non appena il tempo cambia, sono subito in vena di fare una grande pentola di chili!

4. Entrare in scrapbooking!

Forse sei un professionista esperto  O forse non hai mai fatto un grande sforzo per stampare e salvare le foto dalla tua vita, ora è il tuo momento! esistono tonnellate di  divertenti (e gratuiti)  tutorial per aiutarvi a iniziare.
