Red Velvet Cake

From Oasis Cafe

Red velvet cake is much more than vanilla cake tinted red. This recipe produces the best red velvet cake with superior buttery, vanilla, & cocoa flavors, as well as a delicious tang from the buttermilk. It’s the sweet marriage of buttermilk & vanilla with a little cocoa for good measure. She’s tall, dramatic, & completely covered in silky cream cheese frosting. This is one cake that takes center stage! Softer than most cakes with a mouth-watering velvet-like texture in each bite.

Mike Amvros emigrated from Greece to the borough of Queens, New York, in 1975, and 11 years later he opened his first business, Oasis Cafe. Since then, the bakery has become a cornerstone of the community and a true oasis, with one of the city’s largest garden seating areas and a wide array of Greek and classic American desserts for every taste. Oasis Cafe is a true melting pot, just like its native Queens.
