Hey everyone! Chelsea back from Chelsea’s Messy Apron and now that the big game day has come and gone (GO BRONCOS!) I’m in full blown Valentine’s Day mode.

And I don’t think Valentine’s Day can be complete without some good red velvet…right?!
redvelvet3This red velvet pound cake is SO easy to make (hello doctored cake mix recipes, you are the best!) and filled with delicious rich flavors. It’s ultra thick and heavy as a good pound cake should be!

With only 6 ingredients and a 10-minute tops prep time, this could just be THE Valentine’s treat! 🙂

This red velvet pound cake is filled with delicious and rich flavors. It is thick and heavy and absolutely delicious!
Serves: 2 bread pan loaves
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • 1 package (4.3 ounces) white chocolate instant pudding mix, dry
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and ½ cup water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Prepare 2 regular bread pans by generously spraying with cooking spray and lightly dusting with flour.
  2. Briskly whisk the eggs until foamy. Beat in all the other ingredients until completely combined being careful to not over-mix.
  3. Separate the dough evenly into 2 loaf pans.
  4. Bake for 60-90 minutes (wide variance depends on altitude differences and oven differences) or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
  5. Remove from the oven, allow to cool, and then remove from the pan.

  1. This recipe looks sooooo good! I’m confused, though, at the size of the pan to be used. Is a regular bread pan 9×5 or 8×4? I’m not sure even the industry has standardized this pan. What was your intention?

  2. oh yummy!

  3. I love cake mix recipes. I’m a huge fan of the cake mix doctor. This red velvet pound cake looks divine, and red velvet is my daughter’s favorite. I already added the ingredients to my shopping list. I will be making this for her this weekend.

  4. I made this cake today–very good and easy. I used 9×5 pans and baked for 65 min.

  5. I don’t have small loaf pans. Could I make it in a bundt cake pan?

    This turned out perfect-so moist. Used vanilla pudding. Took this to work-everyone loved it!!!

    • That is so great to hear! I love using vanilla pudding in my cakes! Thank you for sharing! Xo
