This red velvet bundt cake is supremely moist with a rich cheesecake-like swirl inside. It’s so incredibly easy to make that the red velvet cake comes together in ONE-BOWL and finished with a light simple dusting of powdered sugar!



Red Velvet Bundt Cake

  • 2 cups cake flour, sifted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar, white or apple cider
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring gel
  • Powdered sugar for dusting over finished cake

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 1 (8-ounce) brick-style cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Red Velvet Bundt Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 10-cup bundt pan heavily with baking spray to ensure a flawless cake release. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients from flour to vinegar in bowl and whisk together until everything is well incorporated. Then add in red food coloring and mix again until color begins to show throughout batter.
  3. Pour half of batter into prepared bundt cake and then add cream cheese filling directly on top of the first red velvet cake layer. Then add remaining batter and bake in the oven for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean.
  4. Let cake cool for at least 15-20 minutes in bundt pan and then use a large plate/platter to invert cake onto it. Garnish top of cake with powdered sugar in a small sifter and serve slices. Enjoy!

Cream Cheese Filling

  1. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a handheld electric mixture, mix all ingredients together until well combined and creamy.
