Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Butter for pans (Wilton Cake Release = better results) 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (I used 1/4 cup) 3 3/4 cups cake flour (I used King Arthur flour) 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 2 1/4 cups sugar 2 1/4 cups canola oil 3 large eggs 3 tablespoons red food coloring (1oz. bottle works fine) 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk 2 1/4 teaspoons baking soda 1 tablespoon white vinegar
