Red Velvet Roll

It's been a long time since I have added anything on here, but I'm back to adding my delicious goods for you all to try.

...and this is DELICIOUS.

You have to make this, and soon. If you are craving chocolate, it is the best.

Cake Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbl cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 milk (or buttermilk)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp apple cider vinegar or white vinegar
8 Tbl butter softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 Tbl liquid red food coloring

White Chocolate - Cream Cheese Filling

8 ounce package cream cheese
5 ounce white chocolate, melted
4 Tbl butter 
1/3 powdered sugar

To Make Cake

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix: flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt
Mix separately mixing occasionally: milk, vanilla, vinager, sugar, egg

Combine the two mixtures. Cook in large 10' 1/2'' * 15' 1/2'' pan that has small 1/2'' rim around the edge. Make sure to spray the pan.

To Make Filling

Melt the chocolate chips in microwave stirring occasionally so they don't burn. Slowly mix in the rest of the ingredients starting with cream cheese, and ending with sugar.

Cook for about 10 minutes or until cake springs back at you.

Rolling the Cake

If you haven't made a cake roll your best bet is to watch a you tube video. I do it a way that doesn't seem to work that well.

Just in case. I poor the cooked cake on to a floured hand towel. Roll the cake up with the hand towel. Once it is cooled I unroll it and spread the cream cheese frosting. Then just roll it back up with the frosting instead of the towel and let it sit in the fridge for a bit. Usually once it is refrigerated and I cut it turns out looking better than I thought. I do think there is better ways of doing it. This isn't the most reliable way.

The only thing I changed is added extra frosting because my boyfriend loves sugar. If you love sugar, then you might want to think of adding more to the cream cheese frosting.

Make this cake! It is worth it.
