Nigerian Red Velvet Cake is rich in taste and flavour, it is also moist and very yummy. It is a red color cake perfect for valentine and other festive celebrations.

Many people think that Nigerian Red Velvet Cake is hard to make, which isn't true if you know the basis and follow carefully.

Below is a well detailed and easy recipe to make the best Nigerian Red Velvet Cake.

Ingredients For Nigerian Red Velvet Cake:
• 2½ cup plain flour
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
• 2 tablespoon red colour
• 1½ cup granulated sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
• 2 medium-sized eggs
• 1 teaspoon vinegar
• 1 cup buttermilk
• ½ teaspoon salt
• 1½ cup vegetable oil (butter)

Notes On Nigerian Red Velvet Cake: 
• Traditionally Nigerian Red Velvet Cake is made with vegetable oil but you can use butter as substitute.

• To make buttermilk, put one tablespoon of vinegar in a cup and add enough milk to fill it, then leave to sit for 5-10 minutes.

Directions For Nigerian Red Velvet Cake:
• Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Grease the baking pan, by rubbing a little butter or vegetable oil on the inside of the pan. Or lightly dust the baking pan with some flour.

• Next, cream the vegetable oil and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add one egg to it and beat until well combined then add the remaining one and mix very well.

• Now, make a paste of the cocoa and red food colouring. Add it to the creamed sugar mixture. Then mix salt, vanilla and buttermilk together.

• Now, add the flour and buttermilk mixture to the creamed sugar mixture and mix until well combined. Mix the baking powder and vinegar in a cup.

• It will start foaming immediately. Gently fold it into the cake until well combined. Then run a spatula around the sides of the bowl and gently scoop the batter or turn it over.

• Next, place the Nigerian Red Velvet Cake batter inside the baking pan and bake in the preheated oven until a fork or toothpick inserted into it comes out clean.

• Don't mistake the moistness for being undone. When it cools, it'll be perfect. Frost and decorate the Nigerian Red Velvet Cake with butter icing or fondant icing to your taste.

• Nigerian Red Velvet Cake can be served with malt, zobo drink, soya milk or any other drink of your choice. Enjoy!
