Red Velvet Bundt Cake


Brad loves red velvet cake.
I knew for a few weeks that I wanted to make him one for Valentine's Day
and my grandma's amazing bundt cake recipe was the perfect choice.
Seriously, my grandma is the cake queen. 
She has graciously agreed to let me share her recipe on the blog.
This recipe works for any kind of cake, so you can make lots of different varieties.
Grandma does a triple chocolate, oreo, lemon and white chocolate, etc.
Today, I will share the specific red velvet recipe.
And let me tell you, it is amazing. It is perfectly moist and delicious.


Red Velvet Bundt Cake
1 box red velvet cake mix
1 c. sour cream
4 eggs
1/2 c. vegetable oil
3 oz. instant vanilla pudding (you can also use chocolate, but I wanted a light chocolate flavor)
12 oz. white chocolate chips (optional, but I love the taste and texture)


Mix cake mix, sour cream, eggs, oil, and pudding together in a large bowl. Batter will be very thick. 
Stir in chocolate chips.

Grease and flour bundt pan.
Spoon mixture evenly into bundt.  
Bake at 350 for 45-50 min. or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool completely before inverting onto plate, atleast 45 min.
Invert onto plate and drizzle with cream cheese frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, softened
2 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Milk until you reach your desired consistency (I ended up using 2 T, but I wanted it quite thin. 
Add it a little bit at a time until you reach the consistency you want)

I made my own frosting, but you don't have to. You can also just get a can of store-bought frosting and add milk until it is the right consistency. I really like the homemade cream cheese frosting though.

This cake is seriously amazing. I had to take a break from writing this post to go and get a slice!



Give it a try and let us know what you think.
I promise it will be the most moist, delicious red velvet cake you have ever had!

    1. Great question! I actually prefer Duncan Hines. I worked for a wedding cake decorator, and that is what she used. Her cakes were so good and I was floored that she didn't make them from scratch! Duncan Hines is a little more expensive, but it is a great cake mix.
