Red Velvet Sheet Cake

Category: Desserts, Christmas

 Ingredients List

  • Cake
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Frosting
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 4 oz butter
  • 2½ cups powdered sugar
  • 24 Chocolate Sandwich Cookies (Oreos) - about ⅔ package


Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
In a saucepan, combine the butter and the buttermilk and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour and cocoa. Stir in the sugar. Add in the eggs, sour cream, red food coloring, vanilla, baking soda and salt. Mix to combine.
Pour the boiling butter/buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture, a little at a time, stirring constantly. The batter will be very thin. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake the cake for 25-28 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
To make the frosting, beat together the cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Add in the powdered sugar a little at a time. Beat for 2-3 minutes.
Put the cookies in a large zip top bag and use a mallet to crush and break them up. Stir the cookie pieces into the frosting and frost the cake. Cut into slices to serve.
