Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. In a separate dish, blend cocoa and food coloring; add to the sugar mixture. Ad flour, buttermilk, and salt alternately. Mix soda and vinegar in a cup and add.
Butter and flour two 9" cake pans. Divide the batter evenly between the tw pans. Bake at 350x for 30-35 minutes. Let cool before frosting.
Note: Better results can be obtained using a red paste food coloring, available in specialty shops or cake decorating supply departments.
