Bundt cakes are easy to make and especially popular with those who are just learning to bake. These Red velvet cake recipe are very easy to bake and cook evenly, even in the center. Given below is a simple recipe for red velvet bundt cake recipe that is moist and delicious in the center and covered with fluffy cream cheese frosting.

In your kitchen you will need:

- 1 1/2 cups of vegetable oil
- 1 cup of fresh buttermilk
- 2 eggs at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons of red food coloring
- 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
- 2 1/2 cups of flour (use cake or all-purpose flour)
- 1 3/4 cups of white sugar
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder



- Grease a Bundt pan with oil and dust a little flour on the inside. If you are using a non-stick Bundt pan then you can skip the oil.
- Preheat the oven to 350F.
- In a large mixing bowl, break in the eggs and add the buttermilk. Beat them together using an electric blender at high speed until they are well mixed.
- Add the sugar to the mix and beat some more to dissolve the sugar.
- Add the white vinegar, red food coloring and vanilla essence to the mix and beat well.
- In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat the mix well so that there are no clumps present in the mix.
- Pour the prepared batter in the greased Bundt pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 15 minutes. Remove from the pan and let the red velvet cake cool on a wire rack for about an hour before applying frosting.

While the cake cools you can prepare the frosting using:

- 1 cup of cream cheese frosting
- 1/2 cup of softened butter at room temperature
- 2 cups of powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence


- Beat the cream cheese and butter at high speed using an electric blender.
- Add the powdered sugar and vanilla essence and beat the mix until fluffy.
- Place the cooled cake on a cake stand and spread the frosting all over it. Or you can melt the frosting in the microwave for a few seconds and pour it on to the cake and let it flow down the sides and pool at the bottom. Cool before serving.
- Decorate with sliced strawberries or chopped walnuts.
