It’s not every day one have a birthday, but today is actually mine. In a way like and in the same time do not like my birthdays, because I love to have friends coming over, but do not like all the attention.
I have a nice day planed for me to day, by  starting with breakfast with my best friend and neighbor Vera.
I have cake in my fridge, of course,  if  someone stop by today. And I will  end the day singing  in a Rock Choir .

I think it will be a nice day:)

So today I serve a wonderful light , tasty and fabulous red cake!

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/5 tsp acid: as apple vinegar, lemon, etc.
  • 7.1 oz (200 gr) canola oil
  • 3.5 oz (100 gr) butter
  • red color **

* If you do not have  cake flour. You can  substitute  2 Tbsp of all p flour and replace it with 2 Tbsp corn starch.

** If using liquid food coloring, add 1 – 2 Tbsp more flour to the batter.

Cream cheese butter cream:

  • 10.7 oz (300 gr) butter
  • 14.2 oz (400 gr) cheese natural
  • 2 tsp vanilla sugar / vanilla extract
  • 20.7 oz (580 gr) powdrerd sugar

Let`s make the cake !

Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over low heat, remove the sauce pan from the heat.

Pour in the buttermilk and and combine.

In a small bowl add eggs and beat until slightly light and combined.

…  pour in the eggs to the milk mixture. Beat until well combined  and set  aside.

In the mixing bowl sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder.
You can also beat using a wisk  to break up any lumps and provide air into the flour.
Are you using vanilla sugar, add it to the flour mixture.

Add the red color and the acid to the milk mixture and stir to well combined. If you use vanilla extract, add it to the milk mixture.

Pour the liquid in to the mixing bowl with the flour , all at once.  Start the mixer on low speed and beat until just combined (about 30 seconds)

Stop the mixer and scrape sides and bottom of bowl using  a rubber spatula.
Re start the mixer, now om high speed  and count to 10 and STOP!

The batter is ready. :)
I used a 9″ (22 cm) spring form . You may want to use form 8″ (20 cm). The cake will rice higher, you just have to remember to add a few more minutes to the baking time.

Bake at 350 F (180C) degrees for 35 – 45 minutes.Until a sstick incerted in the center of the cake, comes out clean.

Place the cakepan bottom side up  on a wire rack for 10 minutes before removing the cakepan and cool the cake completely.

Cream together on low speed, room temperature butter and 1 /3 of the powdered sugar, until  light and fluffy. continue adding more powdered sugar in small servings, while the machine is running and untoil all the powdered sugar is combined.

Add also the vanilla.

With a hand whisk stir  rapidly  the cheese so until  smooth and soft.

Add 1 tablespoon of cream cheese to the butter mixture while running the mixer on low speed, continue until all cheese is added.

Increase the speed to mediun  and beat until the cream is velvety and smooth.
