Red Velvet Cake
Red Velvet Cake’s origins are a bit muddled, but food historians think the cake craze began in the 1920s when it debuted on the menu at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York. It swiftly became America’s dessert darling when, just a few years later, Texas-based Adams Extract Company printed and distributed recipe cards for Red Velvet Cake made with a generous pour of vibrant food coloring.
Our pastry team wanted to create a more wholesome Red Velvet Cake that anyone would be delighted to share with loved ones, while maintaining that traditional Southern flavor. Red dye was removed from our recipe, and in it’s place we added Dutch-processed cocoa powder and roasted red beets. Beets not only add moisture to the cake, they give it a beautiful rose-red color. Each tender cake layer is capped with rich cream cheese frosting for a flavorful dessert that’s impossible to pass up!
