Description

The perennial favorite layer cake is always a popular choice for a birthday party. This version gets its vibrant color from pomegranate juice in addition to food coloring, the juice also adding a subtle hint of tartness. And there's really no better choice than cream cheese frosting for the stark red and white contrasting color, and there's simply no reason to use anything but Philadelphia brand cream cheese (the bar variety, not from a tub) for the best tasting, fluffiest result.

Ingredients

  • 270 grams brown sugar
  • 140 grams butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pomegranate (juice)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 240 milliliters milk
  • 3 tablespoons red food coloring
  • 300 grams wheat flour (unleavened)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 115 grams butter
  • 230 grams Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 230 grams powdered sugar
  • 1/2 pomegranate

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 360°F.
  2. Mix the sugar with the butter until it reaches a creamy consistency, add 1 egg at a time and blend.
  3. Squeeze the juice of 1 pomegranate and add it to the mixture, then add the vanilla extract, apple cider vinegar, milk, and the red food coloring.
  4. Add the sifted flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, and cocoa. Mix well.
  5. Pour the batter in a round cake pan and bake for 45 minutes.
