I made a red velvet cake today and anytime I hear the velvet, I think of that line from the movie “Coming to America.” I love that movie and Eddie Murphy has always been one,of my favorite comedians. I know there are a lot of homemade red velvet recipea out there, but i used a cake mix. I used the usual ingredients, but added some Greek yogurt and pudding mix to make it more dense. I also threw in some mini chocolate chips, because why not? I went with a cream cheese frosting today, but you can do a regular vanilla, or chocolate frosting or even cool whip.
- 1 red velvet cake mix
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup Greek yogurt (I used nonfat)
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1 box pudding mix (I used white chocolate)
- 1 bag mini chocolate chips
Direction- preheat oven to 350. combine cake mix, pudding mix, oil, eggs, Greek yogurt and water and blend well. Fold in chips. Place parchment paper in a 10 inch springform pan and spray w baking spray. Spread batter in evenly. Bake 22 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs. Cool completely.
- 8 oz cream cheese (I used lowfat neufactel cheese)
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 4 cups powdered sugar
Directions – cream butter and butter 3 minutes. Gradually in powdered sugar. Spread on cake. Store in covered container.
You can keep in fridge if you want.
