Original recipe from the Junior League of Fort Myers
Ingredients
  • 3¾ cup self-rising flour
  • 2¼ cups sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons cocoa
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1½ teaspoons vinegar
  • 2¼ cups vegetable oil
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • ⅓ cup red food coloring (NOT a typo, you will need 3 ounces)
  • 16 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 lb. powdered sugar
  • 1½ cups butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. ) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. ) Sift together dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3. ) Add eggs, vinegar, oil, buttermilk, vanilla and food coloring and mix well.
  4. ) Spoon into 3 greased and floured 9-inch cake pans (approximately 2⅔ cups per pan)
  5. ) Bake 45-60 minutes or until edges of cakes pull away from pan. (Check at 45 minutes because they will probably be done.)
  6. ) After cooling for 10 minutes (no more, I don't know why), remove the cakes to wire racks to cool completely.
  7. ) Meanwhile, beat butter and cream cheese in mixer until fluffy.
  8. ) Slowly add in powdered sugar and mix until fully incorporated and smooth.
  9. ) Layer the frosting between each layer of the cake, and liberally over the top and sides. Top with chopped pecans.
