  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons red food colouring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar

For the cream cheese frosting:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease two 9-inch cake pans with cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder.
  3. In another mixing bowl, beat together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food colouring, vanilla extract, and white vinegar until smooth.
  4. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until the batter is smooth and well combined.
  5. Divide the batter evenly between the two cake pans, and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  6. Allow the cakes to cool completely in their pans before removing and placing them on a wire rack.
  7. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the cream cheese frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, butter, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  8. Once the cakes are cooled, spread a generous layer of frosting on top of one of the cakes.
  9. Carefully place the second cake on top of the first, and then spread frosting all over the top and sides of the cake.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
