Perfect Red Velvet Bundt Cake

Perfect Red Velvet Bundt Cake created by me_verdin_10569902

I have tried many supposedly good Red Velvet recipes as it is my daughters favorite, but every time they are too dry. I have heard this complaint a lot. This recipe, however, yields a dense, moist cake worthy of any professional bakery. I do recommend using a bundt pan. It seems to turn out a more consistent product. A glaze instead of this frosting is also nice, but this frosting is wonderful. Do not use butter or cake flour in the cake. It turns out dry.

    The cake looked like it should and felt like a bundt. All my baking ingredients were fresh and premium products. Yet the cake smelled like a cake donut and tasted bland . So disappointed since it took sometime to bake and costs of the ingredients ! I've baked a lot of things and this was the worse one for me .

    What size bundt pan is recommended for this cake? I read through the entire recipe but might have missed it. Thanks!

    I made this recipe to bring into a staff meeting at work - it was my turn to bring in something to go along with everyone's coffee or juice. To call the cake a success would be an understatement! Not only did I receive many "Thank You"s for bringing it in, as well as requests for the recipe; but a number of co-workers asked would I make one for them for upcoming family or church functions.

    I made 2 tweaks to the recipe as stated...1) Instead of one big bundt cake, I used 2 mini bundt cake pans to make 12 individual sized bundt cakes (People seem to like having their own "personal" cake...plus there's no need to bring a knife or cake cutter in). 2) I didn't have cream cheese on hand AND it was too late to go to the store when I began baking, so I made a glaze using 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, 2 tsps milk and 1 tsp vanilla and drizzled it over each cake
