Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 1 5.1 oz box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c vegetable oil
  • 1 c water

For the cream cheese drizzle:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened (room temp)
  • 2 tbsp butter, softened (room temp)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 c powdered sugar

Instructions

    To make the cake:

    1. Preheat oven to 350.
    2. Pour cake mix and pudding mix into a bowl. Using a stand or a hand mixer, begin mixing the dry ingredients together and slowly blend in the water.
    3. Pour in the vegetable oil and continue to mix.
    4. Beat in eggs, one at a time, mixing between additions.
    5. Pour batter into well-greased Bundt cake pan and bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes (go ahead and check at 42-43 minutes with a toothpick; if it comes out clean, remove from oven).
    6. Set aside to cool in pan for about 10 minutes, and then transfer cake to a rack to continue cooling.


    To make the cream cheese drizzle:

    1. Using a stand or a hand mixer, beat cream cheese and butter together until creamy - about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
    2. Add in vanilla. Add powdered sugar about 1/2 c at a time, mixing between additions.
    3. You can drizzle on the cooled cake using a spoon, or to get a really even drizzle, spoon icing into a large Ziplock baggie, cut a small hole out of the corner of the bag, and drizzle onto the cake.
