Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Let eggs and unsalted butter stand on counter 30 minutes OR until unsalted butter is softened. Grease and flour a 6-cup bundt pan. Set aside.
  3. In medium bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In another medium bowl, use an electric hand mixer to beat softened butter on medium-high for 30 seconds. Add sugar, vanilla, and beat until fluffy and evenly combined. Add eggs one at a time. Beat each egg on medium just until combined. Beat in food coloring on low until mixture is evenly colored. Avoid over mixing.
  5. Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk to egg mixture. Beat on low just until combined. Avoid over mixing.
  6. In a small bowl, stir together baking soda and vinegar. Pour into batter. Beat just until combined. Avoid over mixing.
  7. Let eggs and butter stand 30 minutes. Grease and flour a 6-cup bundt pan. Set aside.
  8. Spread cake batter in prepared bundt pan. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a long knife inserted in center all the way to the bottom, comes out clean. Cake may have a marbled appearance.
  9. Prepare Homemade Cream Cheese Frosting (link to recipe above) before mixing cake or while cake is baking.
  10. After removing bundt cake from oven, allow to cool in bundt pan 10-15 minutes. Place a cake plate over top. Flip pan over plate so cooled cake falls on the plate.
