Red Velvet Cheese Cake Recipes!
1 – Red Velvet Marbled Cheesecake
Time: 2 ½ hours
Servings: 8-12 People
For the crust:
1 dozen double stuf oreos
1 dozen oreo minis
½ cup half n’ half
¼ cup oreo crumbs
For the cheesecake:
4 8 oz packages cream cheese
½ cup sugar
¼ cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
For the red velvet:
½ of the cheesecake batter
½ cup red velvet cake mix
1-3 drops red food dye
♦ Soak your oreos for no more than thirty seconds in half n’ half. Layer them into your springform pan, don’t worry there will be a couple gaps! Then, take the oreo minis, soak them in the half n’ half and squish them into any gaps. If there are still some gaps, fill em in with the oreo crumbs, set aside.
♦ Make the cheesecake batter by mixing together the cream cheese, sugar, eggs, heavy cream, and vanilla until it’s completely smooth and no lumps remain.
Separate half of the batter and mix in half a cup of red velvet cake mix. If it’s not red enough to your liking, then add in some food dye until it reaches your desired level of redness.
♦ Using measuring cups, place the cheesecake batters intermittently one cup at a time. Take a bamboo skewer and drag it across the top of the cheesecake to create a floral design. Bake for 1 hour at 325 °F and then turn off the oven and open the door to let the cheesecake cool for an hour.
♦ Decorate with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and oreo quarters.
2- Red Velvet Crepe Cakes
Time: 1 hour
¼ cup melted butter
2 cups milk
¼ cup cocoa powder
½ cup flour
3 drops red food dye
Cream Cheese frosting
♦ Combine all of the ingredients except the frosting in a blender. Blend until completely smooth and rest for thirty minutes.
♦ In a greased skillet on medium-high heat, use half a cup of batter at a time for the crepes. Flip after a minute or so and then remove from the skillet after thirty seconds. Set crepes aside to cool for like, fifteen minutes.
♦ Place a crepe on a cake stand, frost it with the cream cheese frosting. You only need, not even joking, like a tablespoon of frosting per layer. Keep in mind, you’re making like twenty layers so a little goes a long way. Once all of your layers are layered up, refrigerate the whole thing until you’re ready to serve.
♦ Decorate with powdered sugar and a crepe bow!
