Heritage Red Velvet Cake

I have made and tasted many versions of red velvet cake, but this one stands out as a favorite. I call it "heritage" red velvet because it has been passed down, passed around—and now I'm passing it on to you! This recipe uses butter instead of shortening or oil, and it is bright red as opposed to the usual dark red or brown-red.
