Red Velvet Cake is one of my favorite things in this whole wide world!

Red Velvet Bundt Cake This is a truly wonderful Red Velvet Bundt Cake Recipe!

In my opinion, it rivals any Red Velvet Cake, from any of the best bakeries.

It’s made all from scratch and is actually pretty darn easy to put together.

It’s very tender and moist and I find it to actually be a bit lighter in texture than many cakes of its type.

Recipe Notes:

This is one of the few recipes I actually lug out my sifter and use it.

I think that it helps keep the cake from being overly heavy and improves the overall texture.

Now, if I’m being completely honest though, I don’t sift the powder sugar for the frosting.

Sifting the powdered sugar is a smart thing to do.  It gives you a smoother frosting……I know! I know!

What are a few lumps between friends?


The original baking time for this recipe was 40 minutes.

I don’t think I’ve ever baked a bundt cake for only 40 minutes!

Mine was completely raw inside at that point.

I baked mine 52 minute overall and it was perfect.Just remember oven temperatures all vary.

Oh, make sure when you’re  mixing the wet ingredients, you do so in a deep mixing bowl.

The first time I made a Red Velvet Cake from scratch, I used my large pyrex mixing bowl which has a nice large diameter but is fairly shallow.

I swear that the batter spattered out of the bowl and onto just about every inch of my kitchen.

It looked like a scene out of Dexter!  LOL!!!


This recipe is baked in a 12 cup bundt pan. I love the Nordic Ware Pro Cast Original Bundt Pan
and use it ALL the time!

The pans walls are nice and thick and made to last.

They conduct heat evenly and prevent the edges from browning too much.

The thickness also prevents the pan from getting dented, which results, obviously, in a nicer finished cake.

Speaking of the finished cake, this pan produces beautiful, crisp design detail on the cake.

All the cakes I’ve made release very well from this pan. I think it’s the texture of the pan that helps in this area.

Listen, I’m not trying to oversell you this pan!

Its quality is just head and shoulder above the cheap bundt pans that are also on the market!!!
