I just made this for my husband's birthday. I tasted a little bit that broke off the cake and it tasted just like cake to me at least. We will see how the finished product tastes once I frost it and cut it.

Thank you for this recipe! I just made it and turned it into red velvet whoopie pies! Tried one and wow! It's like real cake!

This did not turn out very well for me. It made a massive amount of batter, way more than I thought would fit in a single cake pan, so I used 2. Only 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder called for, for 2 large cakes? It wasn't chocolatey enough for me. I usually cut a round piece of wax paper for the bottom of the cake pans, but I was out of wax paper. So it stuck terribly. I pried it out with a spatula in pieces. I used a mixture of EZ sweetz/Truvia/Xylitol for the sweeteners and I thought the sweetness was about right. The recipe says to bake 40 minutes, well at 37 minutes in my oven, it was overcooked, so it was a bit dry. I am not going to frost this abomination, but the frosting recipe provided sounds like a winner. A lot of my problems were my own fault. I will adjust some things, like adding more cocoa, and try again. If anybody would like to offer me any suggestions, that would be great. It's got such positive reviews, I'm not giving up yet!

One thing to remember though. Red Velvet cake is not chocolate cake. It is a red buttermilk cake that uses cocoa to assist in leavening. Many cooks complain Red Velvet isn't chocolatey enough. It's not supposed to be. It's a background flavor.
