Red Velvet Cake with Milk buttercream

For me baking and cooking is an adventure, I love to try new recipes, ingredients, equipments or gadgets.

That's why I really love to read cookbooks, ^^ they give me a lot of new ideas. When making something, you can go for the most basic recipe to complicated one, it's your decision. So when I see this method, I think it's very easy and if it can give you delicious cake, you should try it. Just beat everything together, that's all. 
For the buttercream, you don't need to play with hot sugar syrup. It made from milk and flour, that cook until thicken. When beating the butter into the milk mixture will will split a bit but they will come together at last, ^^. 
As this cake use oil as the fat, it will stay moist after refrigerating (cake made from butter will be firm, you need to return it to the room temperature before eating). 
You can use raspberry or strawberry jam, depend on your taste. 

PS. I will hold cooking Demo at Smeg (Thailand) on Nov 14th 2015
