    Post by Julia Hill on Tue 14 Feb 2012, 2:39 am

    A variation on Red Velvet Cake … a la Jules , it is rich and decadent but just don’t divide this down ... it will spread the love around if you share ... giggle ... and really it is delicious

    250g flour (2.5 cups)
    ½ teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    ½ cup butter (115 g)
    1 ½ cups sugar (200g)
    2 large eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 tin granadilla pulp put in cup
    In the cup, fill the cup with buttermilk
    2 tablespoons red food colouring
    1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
    1 teaspoon bicarb

    Preheat oven to 180C
    Grease two round cake pans
    Sift together flour, salt and cocoa
    Beat the butter in mixer until soft
    Add sugar and beat until fluffy and creamy
    Add the eggs one at a time
    Add Vanilla
    Whisk buttermilk, colouring and granadilla in a bowl
    Alternate the buttermilk mix and flour mix ending with flour mix to incorporate all
    In a cup mix the bicarb and balsamic, allow to fix and then add to the batter
    Divide between the two pans
    Bake for 25 – 35 minutes, cool in pans
    Put in freezer for one hour
    Ice with nice cream cheese icing or even a simple icing sugar and lemon juice drizzle
