nshock My mother has several of Faye's recipes. She said to tell you all that she has felt guilty for not being able to get this to you this week due to being computer illiterate. She hasn't learned how to post yet and had to wait on me to do it. So here it is.

Faye's Red Velvet Cake

2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup Wesson oil
1 teaspoon soda
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 ounce red food coloring
1 teaspoon vanilla
* Note there is NO cocoa in this recipe. Mom said it must not have needed it, but you can add it if you want.

Mix sugar and
oil. Add eggs and beat after each addition. Add vinegar. Mix soda with flour, and add alternately with buttermilk. Add vanilla and food coloring. Bake in two eight-inch cake pans at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.

8 ounce cream cheese
1 stick margarine
1 box confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Cream together cream cheese and margarine. Add sugar, nuts and vanilla. Mix well.

Mom has other recipes of Faye's if you are looking for anything else. Mom is the recipe queen and I'm typing this while sitting in her office which has a wall of cook books.

Hope you all enjoy the cake and let me know if we can look for other recipes for you.
