Tour Scotland Video Red Velvet Cake Touchdown Cafe Perth Airport Scone Perthshire
Tour Scotland video of Red Velvet Cake in Touchdown Cafe at Perth Airport on visit to Scone by Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. Red Velvet cake is similar to chocolate cake with either a red, bright red or red brown colour. While it is similar to chocolate cake, a baking aficionado will be able to spot the difference. The primary differences are in the use of buttermilk instead of milk and less cocoa powder. The acids in buttermilk react with the antacid of baking soda to form gas bubbles, which creates a non yeast leavening. This helps create the fluffy and moist texture that has made Red Velvet popular. Red Velvet cake is traditionally prepared as a layer cake topped with cream cheese or cooked roux icing. Common ingredients include buttermilk, butter, cocoa, and flour for the cake, beetroot or red food colouring for the colour.
