Waldorf Astoria Red Cake & Waldorf Icing
|WALDORF ASTORIA RED CAKE|
|1 1/2 c||sugar|
|2 oz||red cake coloring|
|2 1/4 c||sifted flour|
Have you considered Holland House
|1 tsp||baking soda|
|2 stick||oleo = 1 cup|
This recipe was my mother's. SUPPOSEDLY, this is the original of what would become known as the "Red Velvet Cake".
As the story was told, this recipe was created by the Waldorf Astoria's baking Chef for the opening of the Waldorf or very shortly thereafter. Now whether this is true history or not is not for me to say because I wasn't there. This story is a hand-me down.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I have enjoyed it throughout the years!
