Heinz decided to put a tomato-y twist on the classic red velvet cake by adding ketchup to it, and it’s gone viral.Canadian consumers noticed a strange recipe for The Great Canadian Ketchup Cake on the back of their Heinz ketchup bottles, and one brave Redditor decided to bake the ketchup cake himself.
The base of the ketchup creation is a spice cake made with nutmeg and ginger with a half-cup of ketchup and red food coloring to make the result more dramatically red. After baking for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F, it’s taken out of the oven and covered in vanilla cream cheese frosting.
The recipe went viral after Reddit user Big_Black_Cat, also known as Gregory Nuttle, posted a photo of the recipe, and the experimental cake itself, which he fed to his unsuspecting victims, er, friends. He posted the final taste test to YouTube. The verdict? It was deemed “not bad” by Nuttle, and his friends added that the ketchup cake was “moist and sweet.”
