Brown Velvet Rose Cakes
Recipe type: Cake
Serves: 16
Brown velvet rose cakes are the result of a traditional red velvet cake made without the red colouring. It tastes every bit as good though!
  • 1¼ cup canola oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp liquid food colouring
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp coffee extract
  • 2½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp fine salt
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF with a rack centered in the middle.
  2. Using a standing mixer, combine oil, buttermilk, eggs, food colouring, vinegar, vanilla and coffee extract. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
  3. In a medium bowl sift together flour, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder and sugar.
  4. With the mixer on low, add dry ingredients to the batter ½ cup at a time. Add slowly so that the mixture does not form lumps.
  5. Lightly grease the pan and pour batter into each cavity till they are ⅔ full.
  6. Bake until inserted toothpick comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
  7. If frosting, cool completely first.
