How To Make Red Velvet Pound Cake

The iconic Red Velvet cake has a rich history that many might find intriguing. While there’s debate about its exact origins, its popularity surged around the late 1930s. The cake’s unique reddish-brown hue originally came from the reaction between Dutch cocoa, vinegar, baking soda, and buttermilk. This chemical reaction resulted in a funky color change, transforming the cake from brown to reddish-brown.

However, most of today’s cocoa powder contains an alkalizing agent, neutralizing much of the acidity and, consequently, the color-changing properties. This is why modern Red Velvet cakes often rely on food coloring to achieve their vibrant red shade. The cake’s name, “Red Velvet,” doesn’t just refer to its color but also its velvety texture, which sets it apart from other cakes.
