Red Mystery Cake


1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 ounces red food coloring  (this got me off!!)
2 tablespoons cocoa
2 1/2 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda

Cream butter and sugar together thoroughly. Add eggs and beat well. Make a thin paste of the food coloring and cocoa. Add to creamed mixture.

Sift flour and salt together and add to batter alternately with buttermilk. Blend in vanilla.

Combine soda and vinegar and mix into batter immediately at low speed. Pour at once into two greased and waxed paper lined 9-inch layer cake tins.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Let cool and then remove from pans. Fill and frost with cream cheese icing.
