I could not fine my 'Quick Velvet Cake' recipe; therefore, I added to this one. The cake was moist, delicious, and everyone asked for the recipe! This is what I did: I added 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup water, 1/3 cup Veg. Oil, 3 Eggs,
1 tsp. Vanilla to the box of White Cake Mix and
Chocolate pudding. I did not use buttermilk.
When I make a Red Velvet Cake I use half of the
amount of red food coloring the recipe calls for.
Why? Because I do not like the taste of it!
Give this a try---you will be glad you did!!
This cake ranks a 5 for the simplicity and ease, but only a 2 for the taste, it was a little below average. It is simple to make, and it turned out moist -almost TOO moist, therefore it was a bit heavy, and I had to adjust the baking time -this is probably due to the fact that the cake mix I used, already had pudding in the mix. I noticed many people noted the "extras" that they added. I think the part that puzzled people the most, were the instructions -perhaps they didn't read them?- overall this would be a recipe that a young teen could make, but it wouldn't be anything I personally would not make again -it didn't have that "red velvet" cake taste. It just pretty much seemed like a milk chocolate cake tinted red, instead of a cake w/ more depth.
Soooooo MOIST! My boyfriend and I LOVED it! And apparently so did my roomate, she ate 1/4 of the cake in one sitting! This is a great recipe for if you are short on time and/or patience... I actually used 5oz. of non-instant chocolate pudding, because that's all they had at the store, (and I don't know how to count oz.) I did as a lot of other people did and used a cream cheese frosting recipe. 5 STAR! I will be making this recipe again, and I think I will do as one reader suggested and try adding just a pinch of powdered sugar and a few drops of vanilla to this cake mix.
Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!
I made this for my boyfriend because he loves red velvet cake. It was so moist and yummy-as good as if I had made it from scratch...except ten times easier!!! This one is a keeper for sure!
Perfect! Red "Cheat" cake was always my birthday cake request from my Grandma. We had a house fire a few years ago & sadly, I lost her recipe. This is it! Thank you so much!
I made this cake twice in a couple of days (for two different parties) and it was wonderful. Very moist. I bought sour cream icing for the frosting but it will probably be just as tasty without the icing.
This was my first Red Velvet cake so perhaps I am not the best judge. The recipie was easy but the taste was not outstanding. My husband, who loves cake, was not thrilled by this either. I'll keep looking.
