A couple months ago I was contacted by a regular reader (hi Candace!) of this website. Candace absolutely loves the Red Velvet Cake Cheesecake that is served at The Cheesecake Factory. And she wanted to know if I had an easy copycat recipe for it. Well, I don’t live anywhere near a Cheesecake Factory. I had been to one years ago but that particular dessert didn’t stick out in my mind. But I thought it sounded like a pretty darn good cake/cheesecake.
However, every recipe I Googled seemed to have a bunch of ingredients and a whole lotta steps. Now you could certainly take nearly a whole day to make an exact replica. And I’m sure those recipes would not disappoint. I, on the other hand, decided to just take inspiration from the original cake and make it into something a little more everyday-friendly. I wanted to take the flavors of that cake and make it into an easy (but no less tasty!) dessert. So, here is what I came up with. Red Velvet Cheesecake Cake.
It starts off by using a red velvet boxed cake mix, then a sweet cream cheese layer is swirled in and then it’s all topped off with a buttery cream cheese frosting. Come to Momma!
