Why I Love This Recipe

I use white cream cheese frosting. You may like to use chocolate.

I have been baking this cake so long I can't remember where it came from. My family wants one every christmas.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 sticks butter - softened
1-1/2 cups sugar

2 (1oz.) bottles red food coloring
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 Tablespoon vinegar
2-1/2 cups cake flour
sift - 3 times
3 stiffly beaten egg whites
1 teaspoon soda


Grease and flour 3 - 8 inch cake pans.

Sift together milk chocolate, salt, flour and soda. Set aside.
