Chocolate cake. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Historically, red velvet cake was just chocolate cake tinted red from the acid in cocoa powder, not from food coloring. Nowadays most cocoa powders are alkalized, as in stripped of acid.
Beatty's Chocolate Cake from Ina Garten, Food Network's Barefoot Contessa, is complete with a rich chocolate buttercream that keeps the cake decadent and moist. Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. This is a deep, dark chocolate cake, but it was almost TOO moist,TOO dense. You can have Chocolate cake using 9 ingredients and 3 steps. Here is how you cook that.

Don't know what really accounts for the difference since the recipes are so similar, and maybe it's just a matter of personal preference, but while this was a very good cake, I'll stick with the other. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating until smooth after each addition. Also, if you've ever wondered why some chocolate cake recipes (like this one) call for boiling water, it's because it helps bloom the cocoa powder, giving the cake a deeper chocolate flavor. For a softer cake, you can substitute cake flour for the all-purpose flour.
