Use a box of German chocolate cake mix with pudding in the mix; make the cake according to directions on the box but add 4 tablespoons of red food coloring. Frost with a can of cream cheese frosting! Enjoy. I've been making my red velvet like that for years (forgot where I got the idea from).

Best Answer

1 white non pudding cake mix

1 3.5 oz package non instant chocolate pudding mix

approximately 1/2 cup buttermilk

red food coloring as desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix as per package directions, substituting buttermilk for half of the water called for. I use sour milk when I don't have buttermilk. Stir in the dry pudding mix, and the red food coloring.( I use about 2 Tbsp.) When the batter is as red as you want it, pour into pan(s) and bake according to the package directions.

There is a new red velvet cake mix on sale now that tastes exactly like a "scratch" cake, if you add the vinegar and cocoa from the original recipe to the cake mix. My son never noticed a difference.
