Red Velvet Cake

Here is a combination of two recipes I have found.

1 stick butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 ounces red food coloring
2 tablespoons cocoa (heaping)
1 cup buttermilk
2 1/4 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

Frosting: 3 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup butter

Red Velvet Cake Directions:
1. In a larger mixer bowl, cream together butter and sugar.
2. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
3. In another bowl, mix red food coloring and cocoa until cocoa is completely dissolved. Add to the creamed mixture.
4. Mixing on low speed, add buttermilk and flour alternately, beginning and ending with flour. Mix well but do not overbeat to ensure a light fluffy cake.
5. Add vanilla flavoring, mix well.
6. Blend the baking soda into the batter.
7. Transfer into two floured and greased 9 inch round cake pans.
8. Bake in preheated 350F oven for 25-30 minutes. Cool.

Frosting Directions:

1. Blend into a small saucepan the 3 tablespoons of flour and the cup of milk. Add the milk to the flour slowly, avoiding lumps.
2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture resembles glue.
3. Cool completely.
4. Cream together sugar, butter, and vanilla until fluffy.
5. Add to cooked mixture. Beat, high speed, until very fluffy. Frost cooled cake
