Red Velvet w/o Food Coloring

I'm looking for a red velvet cake recipe that does not use red food coloring. I've always been under the impression that "real" red velvet is made with some other coloring ingredient like condensed tomato soup. I know there's a bit of a debate around this,but it seems like the best red velvet I've had has been the kind made without food coloring. However, I can't find any such recipes. Anyone have one?
