Nothing Bundt Cake Copycat Red Velvet Cake Recipe

Prep time 20 min 

Cook time 50 min 

Yields 1 cake 


Ingredients For Nothing Bundt Cake Copycat Red Velvet Cake

  • 300 g (2 1/2 cup) all-purpose flour 

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 

  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt 

  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened 

  • 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar 

  • ⅓ cup oil 

  • 2 large eggs 

  • 3 tablespoon cocoa powder 

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract 

  • 1 tablespoon red food dye 

  • ¾ cup buttermilk 

  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar 



  • 6 tablespoon butter, softened 

  • 8 tablespoon cream cheese 

  • 2 cups powdered sugar 

  • 1 tablespoon milk 



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Thoroughly spray your pan to insure a smooth release of the cake. 

  2. For the batter, mix the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.  

  3. In a mixer, combine butter and sugar, and then blend in oil, cocoa, vanilla, food coloring, and eggs.  

  4. Gradually add in half of the dry ingredients, followed by buttermilk and vinegar. For a deeper red, add more food coloring as needed.  

  5. Next, add the remaining dry ingredients to the mix until well combined.  

  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.  

  7. Upon taking the cake out of the oven, let the cake rest for 15 minutes, then promptly remove the cake from the pan. Carefully loosen the cake by gently using a flexible spatula. Place a wire rack or cake plate on top of the cake, and with oven mitts, carefully flip the cake upside-down to release it from the pan. Let the cake cool completely before finishing with frosting. 

  8. Using a mixer, whip the butter cream cheese and powdered sugar on medium speed until a velvety consistency forms. If it appears too thick, adjust its consistency by incorporating a dash of milk, as necessary, until the desired level of creaminess is achieved. 

  9. Add the frosting to a piping bag, cut the tip to your desired size and pipe the ridges of the cake. Smooth some frosting on the inside hole of the cake.  

  10. Enjoy!

Now that you have successfully made your own Nothing Bundt Cake copycat red velvet cake, it's time to present and serve it in the most appetizing way possible. After all, we eat with our eyes first! Here are some tips and ideas for how to make your cake look irresistible:

1. Use a decorative cake stand: A beautiful cake stand can elevate the presentation of any dessert. Choose one that complements the color scheme of your red velvet cake or go for a classic white stand to let the vibrant colors of the cake shine.

2. Add some fresh fruits: Red velvet and fruits like strawberries or raspberries are a match made in heaven. Not only do they add a pop of color, but they also provide a refreshing balance to the richness of the cake. Slice them thinly and arrange them on top or around the edges of your bundt cake.

3. Dust with powdered sugar: For an elegant touch, sprinkle some powdered sugar over your fully cooled cake before serving. This will give it a hint of sweetness without overpowering the rich flavors.

4. Serve with whipped cream: To make your indulgent red velvet bundt even more decadent, serve it with freshly whipped cream on top or alongside each slice. You can also mix in some cream cheese into your whipped cream for an extra tangy twist.

5. Drizzle with chocolate sauce: If you're a chocolate lover, why not take things up a notch by drizzling some warm chocolate sauce over your sliced bundt? The combination of rich chocolate and velvety red velvet is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

6. Top with edible flowers: For a whimsical touch, decorate your bundt with edible flowers such as pansies or rose petals (make sure they are pesticide-free). This adds both beauty and flavor to your dessert.

In terms of serving suggestions, this Nothing Bundt Cake copycat red velvet cake is perfect for any occasion. It can be served as a decadent dessert for a dinner party, a special treat for a birthday or anniversary, or even as the centerpiece of your holiday spread.
