Red velvet cake is one of my favourite flavours to bake. I bake variations of the cake and sometimes I make layered cake with cream cheese frosting. In this instance I decided to use one of my nordic ware bundt tins to make this beautiful and delicious red velvet bundt cake

Red velvet bundt cake ingredients

  • 300 grams self raising flour
  • 250 grams caster sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder (sieved)
  • 113 grams vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 240 ml plain yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon red food colouring paste (you may need more or less depending on your red food colouring concentration)

Add these two ingredients after the cake batter is smooth

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice or white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Method for red velvet bundt cake recipe

  • Grease and flour your bundt pan and put to one side.
  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  • Put all the wet ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk together.
  • Put the dry ingredients into a separate bowl.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  • Add the bicarbonate of soda and lemon juice and mix it in.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and bake in the oven for 40-45 mins until slightly golden brown and firm on top.
  • Test with a cake tester, if it comes out clean it is ready.
  • Leave the cake in the tin for about 10-15 minutes and then use two cooling racks to flip the cake onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

Put it on a serving plate and dust some icing sugar on it and serve.
