Red velvet cake with cream cheese icing
This Siúcra recipe creates a luxurious cake layered with delicious cream cheese icing.

350g Siúcra granulated sugar

2 eggs

210g plain flour

5g bicarbonate of soda

1g salt

20g cocoa powder

Vanilla essence to flavour

15ml white wine vinegar

100ml liquid margarine

250ml sour milk

45ml red caramel colouring

60g natural philadelphia cream cheese, light if preferred

30ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

250g Siúcra icing sugar

Whisk together the sugar and egg until light and fluffy. Combine the dry ingredients and stir into the mixture with the white wine vinegar, margarine and sour milk. Add the colouring and mix well. 

Pour the mixture into a greased, floured springform tin about 25 cm in diameter. Bake in the centre of the oven at 175°C for about 40 minutes. Leave the cake to cool in the cake tin for a few minutes, turn out onto a rack to cool completely. 

Whisk together the cream cheese, lemon juice and icing sugar. Divide the cake into three layers and spread icing on two of them. Place the two with icing on the bottom, and the one without icing on the top. Cover the entire cake with icing. To finish, decorate with the pralines.
