Green Velvet Cake

Adapted from Epicurious

I searched out some green velvet recipes, but was unimpressed. I HATE adding oil to anything. I try and avoid it. It just grosses me out. So I found this red velvet cake recipe at Epicurious at it didn't call for any oil, just real butter (so I'll probably die of heart failure - whatever). I changed it up a little and viola!
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour milk (milk with a T of vinegar or lemon juice)
  • 1 oz green food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
In a medium bowl whisk flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. In a small bowl mix milk, vinegar and food coloring. In the bowl of your stand mixer beat the butter and sugar to combine. Add eggs and mix well. Add the flour and milk mixtures alternately in several small additions. Beat in the sour cream.
Pour into prepared cupcake pans or 2 9" rounds greased with cake release.
Bake 30-35 minutes (for 9" rounds) or until toothpick inserted into the center of cake comes out clean.
Let rest for 10-15 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely. Frost with cream cheese frosting and serve.
