12 portions
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch baking soda
  • 1 cup oil
  • 3/4 cups whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • liquid vanilla, to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • red food dye , to taste
  • 2 cups whipping cream, (for cake coverage)
  • 1 cup sugar, (for cake coverage)


Preheat the oven to 180º C.
Beat the egg with half the sugar and vanilla essence for approximately 15 minutes, stop the shake once the mixture changes color (towards a lighter one).
Add the rest of the sugar and continue beating.
Add the oil little by little, looking for a thread when adding it.
Add the whipping cream (without stirring) and the vinegar, then add the dry ones (flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda) at low speed.
Finally add dye until it has an intense red in the mixture, since with baking it loses a bit of the intensity of the color.
Grease the mold with butter and flour, pour the Red Velvet mixture. Bake at 180º C for about 50 minutes, check with a toothpick if it is well cooked (if the toothpick comes in, it comes out clean, the cake is already cooked).
Let the cake cool and unmold. Cut the cake in half with a serrated knife.
Add the whipping cream in a bowl and gradually add the sugar while you are beating. Seek a firm consistency and form peaks.
With a fork, remove crumbs from the cake and reserve them.
Spread a light layer of the whipped cream that was prepared on one half of the cake. Place the other half of the cake and cover with the whipped cream. Form vertical lines on the edge of the cake with the help of a spatula. Finish decorating with whipped cream roses and sprinkle the cake crumbs.


Accompany with a coffee or a glass of milk.


You can substitute white vinegar for apple cider vinegar.
