Hooray, it’s Our 2nd Birthday and We’re Celebrating with a Skinnylicious Red Velvet Cake! Recipe
I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I launched Skinny Kitchen. It’s been a heck of a lot of work creating each recipe, taking the photos, doing the nutritional’s and writing about each recipe, but I have to say, I’m loving every minute of it!!! A big heart felt thank you to all of you for joining me on Skinny Kitchen. I appreciate your comments and suggestions and I’m enjoying what you share with me with on Facebook too. It just wouldn’t be as much fun if I didn’t have all of you. And now…Enjoy some yummy birthday cake!
With my very best wishes,

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a bundt pan with cooking spray with flour, see shopping tip below.
- In an electric mixer or using a hand mixer, combine all the cake ingredients except the eggs and whites. Beat well. Add the eggs and egg whites and beat on high for 1 minute.
- Fill bundt pan and spread the batter evenly. Shake the pan a few times to make the batter is even on top.
- Bake for about 55-65 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool in pan for 15 minutes. Carefully loosen sides of cake with a flat knife or spoon before removing. Invert cake onto plate. Let it cool before frosting.
- To make the frosting-using a mixer, whip the cream cheese until smooth. Add the powder sugar, milk and mix until smooth. It should be somewhat thick.
- Drizzle the frosting all around the top of cooled cake. Decorate with sprinkles or mini chocolate chips, if desired.
