1 teaspoon (5mL) baking soda
2 Tablespoons (10g) unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon (2.5mL) salt
1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
2 cups (400g) granulated sugar
1 cup (240ml) vegetable oil
4 large eggs, room temperature and separated
1 Tablespoon (15mL) pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon (5mL) distilled white vinegar
liquid or gel red food colouring
1 cup (240ml) buttermilk
Slightly sweet and with a touch of cocoa, this cake is perfectly festive for the holidays.


1.Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease your bundt pan (canned spray works well).
2.Make the cake: Whisk the Rogers No Additive All Purpose Flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Set aside.
3.Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together on medium-high speed until combined, about 1 minute. Scrape down the sides and up the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. Add the oil, egg yolks, vanilla extract, and vinegar and beat on high for 2 minutes. (Set the egg whites aside.) Scrape down the sides and up the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.
4.With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients in 2-3 additions alternating with the buttermilk. Beat in your desired amount of food coloring just until combined. I use 1-2 teaspoons gel food coloring. Vigorously whisk or beat the 4 egg whites on high speed until fluffy peaks form as pictured above, about 3 minutes. Gently fold into cake batter. The batter will be silky and slightly thick.
5.Pour batter into cake pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the tops of the cake springs back when gently touched and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove cake from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes.
6.Invert onto cooling rack.
7.Sift icing sugar over top of cake and add garnish of your choosing.
