Servings 1 Bundt cake



  • 1-15.25 oz. box red velvet cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 oz. cream cheese {softened}
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


  • 1 can prepared chocolate or cream cheese frosting


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Spray bundt pan liberally with nonstick cooking spray and flour.  Set aside.

  3. To prepare cake batter:  Mix cake mix, water, oil, eggs and sour cream in medium bowl and stir either by hand or with hand held mixer until well combined.  Pour 2/3 of prepared batter into greased bundt pan.

  4. To prepare the filling: combine softened cream cheese and sugar with handheld mixer until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, mix to combine.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Spoon filling over the middle section of cake batter in bundt pan {it should hit the outside or inside of the pan} and top with remaining 1/3 of batter.  Use a spatula to completely cover filling with batter.

  5. Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until the cake bounces back when you press down on the top.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes and then invert onto cake plate and cool completely.

  6. Frosting:  Remove foil cover from frosting.  Microwave on high for 30 seconds or until the frosting is thin enough to pour.  Using a spoon pour frosting over your black bottom red velvet bundt cake and serve or store in refrigerator until ready to use.
