½ cup butter, softened
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1½ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 oz red food coloring
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp white vinegar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ᵒF.
  2. Line two 8-inch round cake pans with parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Add flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda to FourSide or WildSide+ jar and secure lid. Press “Pulse” 2-4 times to incorporate the ingredients. Dump into separate bowl and set aside.
  4. Add butter, oil, and sugar to jar and secure lid. Blend on a low speed for 20 seconds.
  5. Add eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, red food coloring and vinegar to jar and secure lid. Select “Batters” or blend at a medium-low speed for 30 seconds.
  6. Add half of the dry ingredients to jar and secure lid. Blend on a low speed for 5 seconds.
  7. Add remaining dry ingredients and secure lid. Blend on a low speed for 10-15 seconds or until dry ingredients are incorporated.
  8. Pour even amounts of cake batter into prepared cake pans and bake for 22-26 minutes.
  9. Allow to cool completely and prepare the icing.
  10. Cut off rounded top of one of the cakes and use that cake as the bottom layer.
  11. Using icing, spread 1/4-1/2 cup icing on bottom layer and stack the other cake on top to make two layers. Frost entire cake. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
