Recipe
1
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
2
In a large bowl, mix 250 grams of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda, 1 1/2 teaspoons of cocoa powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Set aside.
3
In another bowl, whisk together 240 ml of buttermilk, 1 teaspoon of white vinegar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Set aside.
4
In a separate large bowl, beat 200 grams of granulated sugar and 120 grams of unsalted butter until light and fluffy. Add 2 large eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
5
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the buttermilk mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
6
Stir in 1 tablespoon of red food coloring until the batter is uniformly colored.
7
Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
8
Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
9
To prepare the cream cheese frosting, beat 200 grams of cream cheese, 100 grams of unsalted butter, 400 grams of powdered sugar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
10
Once the cakes are completely cooled, spread a layer of frosting on top of one cake layer. Place the second cake layer on top and spread frosting over the entire cake, covering the top and sides evenly.
