This easy red velvet cake recipe is here to help impress your guests during the holidays or any other special occasion. We know that baking can sometimes seem overwhelming, so our recipe for red velvet cake includes a box of German chocolate cake mix. Ready in just 45 minutes, this cake recipe features the perfect combination of cocoa, vanilla and tangy sour cream for a superior flavor that’s hard to beat. Much more than just a red-tinted cake, this recipe uses the “one bowl” method to help cut down on mess while making the batter all at once, instead of separating the wet and dry ingredients before mixing them. The best way to take this moist red velvet cake over the top is to cover it in a silky layer of cream cheese frosting. Go ahead and sink your fork into a slice of this dense yet soft red velvet cake for a mouthful of decadence.
