Classic Devil's Food Cake With Vanilla Frosting


This classic red devil's food cake recipe is similar to red velvet cake. The cake is made with buttermilk and a small amount of red food coloring. It's an easy cake to prepare, and it comes out moist and delicious every time. Use the included vanilla frosting or use a purchased frosting.

The cake may be baked in a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan as well. The rectangular cake might take a few minutes longer to bake.
