🍰🧁 Red Velvet Cheesecake! 🍰🧁


πŸ“ Ingredients:


RED VELVET LAYER:


Butter, for greasing the cake pan

Flour, for dusting the cake pan

1 box red velvet cake mix, plus the ingredients called for on the box

CHEESECAKE LAYER:


2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened

2/3 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1/3 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

WHIPPED LAYER:


2 cups heavy cream

4 tablespoons powdered sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

🍰 Instructions:


RED VELVET CAKE LAYER:

1️⃣ Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

2️⃣ Grease a 9-inch springform cake pan with butter and dust it with flour to prevent sticking.

3️⃣ Prepare the red velvet cake batter according to the directions on the box. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan.

4️⃣ Bake the cake in the preheated oven for 30 to 32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

5️⃣ Let the cake cool slightly in the pan, then remove it. Use a cake leveler to make sure the top is even and flat. Set the cake aside.


CHEESECAKE LAYER:

1️⃣ In a large bowl using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the softened cream cheese and sugar until fluffy and well combined for about 3 minutes.

2️⃣ Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

3️⃣ Mix in the sour cream, flour, vanilla extract, and kosher salt, beating until everything is combined.

4️⃣ Pour the cheesecake filling into a SEPARATE 9-inch springform pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour or until the cheesecake is slightly jiggly in the center.

5️⃣ Let the cheesecake cool slightly, then transfer it to the freezer to cool completely and firm up before assembling it on top of the red velvet cake layer. If desired, use the cake leveler again to achieve even layers.


WHIPPED FROSTING:

1️⃣ In a mixing bowl, add the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.

2️⃣ Using a large balloon whisk, whisk together the ingredients by hand for about five minutes until soft peaks start to form. Be careful not to overwhisk.


ASSEMBLING THE CAKE:

1️⃣ Carefully place the cheesecake layer on top of the red velvet cake layer.

2️⃣ Spread the whipped cream over the top of the cheesecake layer.

3️⃣ Use a decorator's pastry tip to create whipped dollops around the edge of the cake.

4️⃣ Garnish the cake with red velvet cake crumbs for an extra touch of elegance.


πŸŽ‚πŸ§ Serve & Enjoy!
