For the Cake:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ounces red food coloring (about two small bottles)

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and granulated sugar.

  3. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, mix together the vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla extract, white vinegar, and buttermilk.

  4. Prepare Cocoa Mixture: In a small bowl, create a paste by combining the unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda, and red food coloring. Add this paste to the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.

  5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth and well combined.

  6. Fill Cake Pans: Divide the cake batter evenly between the prepared cake pans.

  7. Bake: Place the pans in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.

  8. Cool: Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for approximately 10 minutes. Then, carefully remove them from the pans and let them cool completely on a wire rack.

  9. Prepare Cream Cheese Frosting: While the cakes are cooling, prepare the cream cheese frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, continuing to beat until the frosting is creamy and well combined.

  10. Frost the Cake: Once the cakes are completely cool, spread a layer of cream cheese frosting on top of one cake layer. Place the second cake layer on top and frost the top and sides of the entire cake with the remaining frosting.

  11. Decorate: You can decorate the cake as desired, perhaps with red velvet cake crumbs, sprinkles, or any decorative elements you prefer.

  12. Serve: Slice, serve, and enjoy your homemade Big Red Cake!

This vibrant and delicious Big Red Cake is perfect for birthdays, special occasions, or any time you want to treat yourself and your loved ones to a delightful dessert.
