I made these today as a treat for a teacher luncheon. I made them as cupcakes. It made 24 (I used a cookie scoop for the bottom and 1tbls and 2tsp for the cream cheese mixture) Baked for 20-24 minutes. Sprinkled with red sugar before baking. Oh how yummy!!! The kids have requested these for their class parties (oh the contraband home-made items!) How delish! I did add a tsp of vanilla to the cream cheese. When making, the raw cream cheese mixture was gritty-- but the end, baked result was wonderful!
Made this into cupcakes and took them to my surgeon along with assorted cookies. The office went wild over them and have already received a phone call asking for the recipe. Hubby is wanting to know when I am going to bake more so he will have more than just one to taste. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!
I made these for the preschool teachers and they vanished. What a great easy treat. I would like to make again for Valentine's Day. Lisa
Very easy and tasty. I submitted the photo with the red bow. I reserved about a fifth of the red velvet batter and added some water to it to drizzle on the cheesecake layer than ran a knife through it to create a swirl. I also added vanilla extract to the cheesecake. I recommend taking them out of the oven before the cheesecake gets to browning as by that time the red velvet will have burned a little.
Followed the recipe to a "T" but found the cake portion way too dry and the cheesecake portion very thin. Wasted good ingredients on this recipe - definitely not a keeper.
I've made this recipie numerous times now, and it's ALWAYS the hit dessert. I've heard that it's the best red velvet anything anyone has had before, and I am constantly begged for the recipie.
I adjust the recipie, making the squares into mini cupcakes and topping them with cool whip. I've found this gives the best ratio of red velvet to cheesecake to cool whip. I always bake the dough until it's almost done, then add the cream cheese mixture towards the end so it doesn't burn in the oven.
Really, you can't go wrong with this recipie.
