I was just caught by my husband eating this cake in the dark kitchen. We have this running joke about my leftover baked goods. I say I don’t want any more and that he should portion off how much he wants and I’ll get rid of the rest…. every single time I end up being caught red handed taking a few bites of his portion. What can I say?? It’s dang good and even better after sitting in the fridge overnight.
I thought with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I needed to whip up a deep red, cocoa-y, cream chees-y bundt cake that was both festive and delicious. This cake right here is all of that and more. And by more I mean there’s a ribbon cheesecake through out the cake making it even better. Moist red velvet cake, cheesecake ribbon, cream cheese icing… pretty much the best thing ever.
My Valentine loved this cake… (well the part that I actually saved for him..) I can almost guarantee that any Red Velvet lovers in your life will too! <3
* I used a full 4 tablespoons of cocoa and my cake was a dark rich red. I wanted to amp up the chocolate flavor so I went with that...If you want it to be a bug more vibrant you could to 3 tablespoons as well.
