How to Make Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Filling

I meant it when I said that this Red Velvet Cake recipe was easy! Read the instructions once over, then print it below, and then execute! 🙂

Preheat oven to 325 degrees and prepare a bundt pan with non-stick spray. I like to use Baker’s Joy Non-Stick Baking Spray.

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, sour cream, oil and eggs and mix until well combined. Set aside. It should be red now!

In a medium bowl, using either a stand or hand mixer, combine the cream cheese, sugar and flour and mix until creamy. Set aside. This is  your filling.

Pour half of the red velvet cake batter into the bottom of your pan. Then, either spoon the cream cheese filling around the center or you can use a piping bag to squeeze it more precisely into the center.

Be sure to leave a border on the outside and inside edges of your cake. Pour the remaining batter over the top and spread around evenly.

Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes, before removing from the pan. Turn the pan over and cool the cake on a cooling rack until completely cooled. The cake should come out of the pan cleanly.
