Bea Liles asked me for my red velvet cake recipe. This is one of them but I'll post 2 more later. This recipe came from my sister and she mostly bakes from mixes. This one is very good though. She has used devils food as well as the german choc. the recipe calls for. What could be easier? Just dump it all in the bowl and stir!!!!
