    RED VELVET CAKE ILLUSTRATED ON FRONT OF BOX

    • Adjust oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven to 180°C. Butter cake tins generously and line bases with baking paper or spray with a non-stick cooking spray.
    • Beat eggs, oil and melted butter together for 30 seconds on high speed until well blended.
    • Add hot milk and beat briefly on high speed.
    • Add the contents of the pack and gently mix in by hand with a spatula. Mix only until combined. It is important not to over mix.
    • Divide mixture evenly between the two prepared pans, and level the tops with the back of a tablespoon.
    • Place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. Cake is done when a thin-bladed knife inserted into the centre comes out clean or cake pulls away slightly from the sides of the pan.
    • Cool cakes in the pans for 10 minutes. Turn out on a cooling rack. Do not ice until cakes are completely cool. Delicious with cream cheese icing – see method below for fool proof recipe.
