  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and prepare three 8 inch cake pans with shortening and a dusting of flour. Line pans with parchment or wax paper. Mix cake mixes together according to box instructions.  Then add remaining ingredients.  Bake at 325 degrees until cakes spring back when touched in the center. This makes a lot of cake batter.  You can bake up and freeze any extra layers, tightly wrapped, or you can half the recipe.  If you half the recipe, I would use the spice cake mix rather than the white.

CLASSIC RED VELVET CAKE RECIPE - BETTYCROCKER.COM
The “red” makes sense, but what about the “velvet” in Red Velvet Cake’s iconic name?

From the color to the crumb, this homemade Red Velvet Cake is a dessert classic. If you prefer cupcakes over cakes, our Classic Red Velvet Cake recipe works perfectly for that – check out our "Expert Tips" section for guidance.

CHOCOLATE OLIVE OIL CAKE RECIPE - NYT COOKING
This tender chocolate cake has a deep cocoa flavor that’s intensified by the slight bitterness of olive oil. Cinnamon adds a touch of spice here, and the Earl Grey tea, a mellow citrus perfume. Feel free to play around with the hot liquid used to dissolve the cocoa powder: Coffee, red wine, orange juice or any other flavorful tea will add their own notes to the cake, while water will let the chocolate shine on its own. Serve this as is, or with a dollop of whipped cream or some ice cream on top.

  • Scrape batter into prepared pan and bake until the sides are set but it’s still slightly damp in the center, 35 to 45 minutes. A cake tester should come up clean but with a few sticky chocolate crumbs clinging to it. Transfer cake pan to a wire rack and let cake cool completely in pan.
